Man dies after swallowing toothpick.
According to yesterday's Alithia, the air steward fell asleep with a toothpick in his mouth last Wednesday after eating a meal. State pathologist Eleni Antoniou was quoted saying that his subsequent death was a result of asphyxiation by the ingestion of a non-digestible object. She confirmed that part of the toothpick was recovered during her examination.
The young steward from Larnaca had been working for CY for a year and a half. According to the paper, his wife was pregnant with a second child. The funeral took place last Friday.
