Interesting story and thanks for the reminder to always stay well hydrated. As if we don't have enough to worry about, I understand death can result from drinking too much water as well, called water intoxication. Very rare, but I think it occurs in marathon runners who drink too much water without adequate sodium intake. I think it may also happen rarely with compulsive water drinkers too, you know, the psychiatric kind.
