A teenage boy in Mexico City has died from a stroke that is said to have been caused by a "love bite" from his girlfriend.

Julio Macias Gonzalez, 17, spent the evening with his 24-year-old girlfriend. Later that night, he began convulsing while eating dinner with his family. They called an ambulance, and Gonzalez died at the scene.

The Mexican media reports that doctors believe the suction from the hickey-making caused a blood clot, which traveled to Gonzalez's brain and caused a stroke.
