Sneezed to death

In the Canadian province of British Columbia, coroners are to hold an inquest into the death of Rene Armand Vaugeois, aged 88.

He was either trying to kill himself or someone else with a sharp instrument.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police were called. They couldn’t wrestle the weapon away – so they pepper-sprayed him.

That seemed to do the trick.
