Energy drinks claim 2nd victim in Saudi
A 46-year-old Bangladeshi man died after having an energy drink to become the second victim of the beverage in the Gulf Kingdom.

Doctors said they tried to save the man’s life but his heart stopped and did not respond to treatment, adding that tests showed he had an energy drink just before he was admitted to hospital in the western Saudi town of Medina.

The Arabic language daily Al Hayat said the Bangladeshi was the second victim of energy drinks in Saudi Arabia. Nearly three months ago, a Saudi man was reported to have died after having a large quantity of such drinks.
