Why did our Gary die?
“We saw him on the Tuesday night after his scan and he was bit groggy but he was fine. Less than 24 hours later he was fighting for his life in intensive care.”
A family have spoken of their heartbreak after a 31-year-old man died just two days after being diagnosed with a twisted hernia. via St Helens TodayFull Story

Sounds like he developed septic complications. Incarcerated hernia which set off his body's immune system probably causing acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multisystem organ failure. You always think this happens in the older patient with multiple co-morbidities, but can occur in younger healthy individuals. I once saw something similar in a patient admitted for a small abscess located within the wrist. The body's immune system goes overboard.
