Brit man killed by drinking too much water
A haulage firm boss from Shropshire collapsed and died after drinking too much water.
Andrew Smith suffered from the rare condition polydipsia, which causes excessive thirst.
The 47-year-old was taking prescription medicine that made him thirsty but his family said they never knew the risks of excessive water intake.
His brother Robert said noone in the family was told about the risk of polydipsia.
He said: "None of us were aware that could happen.
"He was taking tablets which naturally made him thirsty and mum mentioned to the doctor on October 8 that he was drinking a lot but they didn't even mention it then."
