There's been a big emphasis on getting rid of plastic straws to keep our oceans clean. But the alternative, a metal straw, has taken the life of a woman who was impaled by her metal straw and died. A UK newspaper reported that a woman was carrying a mason jar with a metal straw when she fell, and impaled her brain as the straw went through her eyeball.
She was found dead at her home by partner. Autopsy results show no alcohol or drugs in her system.
