Death by Mixed Grill

Brewers Fayre steak, gammon, fried eggs, chicken breast, pork sausage, chips, onion rings, grilled tomato and peas combo kills woman; five other gruesome culinary deaths

A Welsh woman named Karen Hopkins – not a relative of the especially unctuous Katie Hopkins one can likely assume – choked to death at the ultimate provider of food hell, a Brewers Fayre, after overindulging on what can frankly only be described as the meal choice of Beelzebub.

 

Poor unfortunate Hopkins and her daughter, Rhianno Evans, had ordered a £13.79 meal at the so-called ‘restaurant’ in Ebbw Vale in Blaenau Gwent. It consisted of a 4oz rump steak, half a gammon steak, two fried eggs, half a chicken breast, two pork sausages, chips, onion rings, half a grilled tomato and garden peas.

Karen Hopkins was just 47 years old.

The Brewers Fayre in Ebbw Vale where Ms Hopkins died.

The result? According to Ms Evans: ‘[My mother] was unable to speak because she was choking, so I slapped her back… Some frothy brown liquid came out… She said: ‘I’m going, I’m going’ before collapsing to the floor unresponsive.”

 

Ms Hopkins was sadly subsequently pronounced dead at the scene and now provides a lesson to us all – Mix grill at your very own peril.

 

Five other curious deaths by food and drink:

 

Alan MacDonald – March 2010

This 61-year-old retired banker turned party crasher went uninvited to Kuwait’s national day party at the Dorchester. He took a bite of a canapé, “fell to the floor and later died in hospital.

 

King Adolf Frederick of Sweden – 12th February 1771

A royal who became known for eating himself to death, King Adolf Frederick consumed lobster, caviar, sauerkraut and kippers. He washed the lot down with champagne and then followed with 14 servings of semla with hot milk. He then keeled over and that was that.

 

Basil Brown – 1974

This health advocate died after drinking 10 gallons of carrot juice in 10 days. He had consumed 10,000 times the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin A.

 

Brian Ettles – 2012

Glenfiddich Distillery employee Brian Ettles decided to throw himself into a 50,000 litre whisky vat. He literally drowned in the “water of life” but no mention is made as what they did with the leftovers.

 

Unnamed dinner lady – 1990

In 1990 in Lancashire, a school dinner lady went into a deep freezer without telling her colleagues. The door slammed behind her and sadly the emergency unlocking system failed. She found the next day amongst rather a lot of Birdseye fish fingers.
