An investigation has been launched after an 18-year-old student sighed, then passed out and died while having sex in the shower with her husband.
Police in Brazil say Vitoria Costa de Castro, who has a two-month-old son, had sex with her 19-year-old husband in the couple's bedroom before he went for a shower and invited her to join him.
As they made love again, her husband said Vitoria sighed and then passed out in his arms.
He immediately called his father-in-law who rushed to the house.
The emergency services were called to the couple's home in the south-eastern Brazilian city of Sao Vicente but she was dead when they arrived.
According to the medics, the young mum displayed no marks of violence and according to her family, she neither smoked, drank, or took drugs.
She had no known health conditions.
Police have launched an investigation into the tragedy but according to doctors, the preliminary evidence suggests Vitoria died of arrhythmia, which is when the heart begins to beat irregularly, either too fast or too slow.
