    John Guttridge, 83, died from chemical gastritis after accidentally mixing a cup of stain remover instead of coffee. He suffered from dementia.
    A senior citizen suffering from dementia died after making a deadly cup of coffee with poisonous stain remover by accident.

    Briton John Guttridge, 83, was killed after mistakenly stirring in Vanish Gold Oxi Action instead of instant granules.

    Guttridge and wife Anne, 79, were rushed to hospital after sipping the drink, where the pensioner passed away, reported the Daily Mirror.

    Anne Guttridge said she took a swig of the coffee and immediately tasted chemicals.

    She survived and told Teesside Coroner’s Court that her husband first suffered a coughing fit before his symptoms became more serious.

    “He was just trying to help. Usually I made the coffee,” his wife Anne Guttridge said.
    Anne Guttridge said she endured a “dreadful experience” as she loved her husband very much.

    “He was just trying to help. Usually I made the coffee," she said.

    An autopsy found John Guttridge died of chemical gastritis.

    “I am satisfied Mr. Guttridge intended to make the drink, however he obviously didn’t intend the outcome,” said Claire Bailey, acting senior coroner for Teesside.

    I hope I never get old, but if I do, I hope I can afford a nice beautiful Hatian nurse to keep an eye on me and give me the occasional sponge bath.

    Poor bastard, hope he gets better.

    This is why "heart health" is an overrated concept. Live long enough and this is your future.

    that poor guy. as i age, i'm more careful about stuff, like taking prescriptions, but if i make it into my 80s ( :pray: ), i'll hopefully have a robot to take care of things like the right dose of medicine.

    getting medicated everyday makes me extra cautious about using knives, hot things, etc.. i wonder if me being nicely high at 61 is kind of the same as being not high at 81?

    Not that funny. Not because of the death and all, I mean, I'm still chuckling over the reporter shooting, but there's no payoff or sense of irony here.

    Dr. Joseph Dolan: You know, it's a shame about Ed.

    Fletch: Oh, it was. Yeah, it was really a shame. To go so suddenly like that.

    Dr. Joseph Dolan: He was dying for years.

    Fletch: Sure, but... the end was very... very sudden.

    Dr. Joseph Dolan: He was in intensive care for eight weeks.

    Fletch: Yeah, but I mean the very end, when he actually died. That was extremely sudden.

    Old guy goes into the doctor's office for test results.

    Doctor says "Well, I'm afraid I have two pieces of bad news"

    Old guy: "what is it?"

    Doctor: "You have cancer"

    Old guy: "Oh my God. What is the other bad news?"

    Doctor: "You have Alzheimer's"

    Old guy: ".....well, at least I don't have cancer"

    My grandmother had alzheimers. Rough way to go.

    If I start showing signs of it, I'm going pig out on burger king, buy a bunch of heroin and prostitutes, then jump out of a plane with no parachute.
