Bizarre muscle cream death.
Arielle Newman, a 17 year-old cross-country runner from New York died after her body absorbed high levels of methyl salicylate, an antiinflammatory drug found in sports creams designed to sooth aching muscles.
"She either lathered herself with it, or used way too much," said Dr Ronald Grelsamer, of Mount Sinai Medical Centre. "An abnormal percentage was absorbed into her body."
Her mother, Alice Newman, said she could not believe her daughter's death was caused by a sports cream.
"I am scrupulous about my children's health," she said.
