Chocolate heaven

The old slogan for Mars chocolate bars was “a Mars a day helps you work rest and play.”

Not for David O’Reilly of County Cavan in Ireland.

An inquest into his death on 17 November has just been told that he choked on a Mars bar.

Cause of death: “severe brain damage due to a lack of oxygen caused by aspiration of a food bolus.”
