Feels like death, wrote Briton on Facebook before dying

Thursday October 06, 2011 05:49:51 PM, IANS

London: A teenager in Britain typed in her Facebook status ":'( feels like death" and minutes later she lay dead from a fatal asthma attack.

Siobhan Ullah, 18, was unable to breathe and in desperation she sent her father Yousuf a text: "I can't breathe."

Yousuf ran to her room, but she told him: "I think I'm going to stop breathing. I think I'm going to die."

Minutes later she fell to the floor with a massive heart attack and never regained consciousness, reported The Sun.

"She didn't have the lungs to shout for help, so she texted me.

"Siobhan was diagnosed with asthma when she was five, but we never thought this would happen," her father was quoted as saying.
