A man has died after suffering a suspected stroke while having sex with his girlfriend.
The 22-year-old, from Keelung in Taiwan, began to sweat and have breathing difficulties before losing consciousness while having sex at 5am, his partner said.
He was taken to hospital but was later pronounced dead. Although there was no official diagnosis, senior doctors believe he suffered a stroke or heart attack.
The 22-year-old, named as Huang, was said to be a little overweight but otherwise healthy and had just recovered from a minor cold.
Prosecutors have requested an autopsy but officers do not suspect foul play.
His girlfriend, identified only as Fu, 20, explained she phoned an ambulance when her partner collapsed on the bed.
'Halfway through our lovemaking, he began to sweat and had difficulty breathing,' she explained.
'He lost consciousness right there, and fell down on the bed with a loud thud.
'I called his name and touched him, but there was no reaction,'
Medics are questioning whether the city's unusually cold weather, which has seen temperatures hit 11C, could have played a role.
Dr. Shih, head of Keelung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital's emergency room, warned that people should avoid vigorous sex when it is cold – and warm up first with some exercises.
