Why would someone be found suffocated after getting stuck in an extreme rainstorm?

He was found dead, no injuries, death wasn't caused by drowning but I remember them saying rain caused it. I don't know how though, he was lost in a rainforest when he got stuck in one of the heaviest rainstorms of the year that apparently lasted for days. The coroner said his throat was all slimy, and didn't say it was an infection. His lungs were also swollen up twice their size..There was a lot of emphasis on the rain, such that the environment was constantly 'wet' and it was raining constantly at around over half an inch per hour.

Ate a poisonous mushroom that comes out during the rain? He also went without food for a while. Just a morbid curiosity

Do you have a link to the source of this claim?

If he tried to cover himself with a tarp or something, it could have been the results of a natural form of extended waterboarding. I know I can cough up some... interesting stuff if it gets wet and miserable enough out. I also wonder if the coroner checked him for tonsil stones. We lived in a crummy apartment, and the mold was was giving me some awful ones, on top of usual damp wonderfulness.

Would really like to read the coroner's report on this one. What you're offering is hearsay. No offense.

The human memory is not infallible, see the Mandela Effect, so without a link to actually read what you are saying it's just words on a page right now and really just sounds like a description of a new Xfiles episode vs anything based in reality.

Still lets say you find the link I'm gonna go with my old friend Occam vs anything mysterious,nefarious or supernatural .

Tried to google it, but you didn't give any other info such as where this occurred or any other detail that might help pin it down.

A quick google search on breathing humid air brings up this:

minnesota.cbslocal.com...

Extremely humid conditions can lower lung performance by 10%, maybe more if you have a lung condition like Asthma. Humid air is "sticky" and much harder to breathe. Imagine how much fluid you're breathing in during an extreme downpour in a rainforest. Rainforests are a double whammy of humidity and heat. Very bad for breathing.

Makes sense it is kind of like getting a fluid build up on the lungs , water does not compress like air and can cause lungs to collapse

I found extremely similar results with his other post as well. I find that... odd and a tiny bit disturbing.

This troll also started a new post about anaphylaxis and water, not sure what his deal is.

Me neither, but I followed a hunch, and well- there's a reply by me there, too. It goes from curious to downright odd.

Because he was in a rainforest exposed to molds, fungi, dirt, debris everywhere he was breathing.

The clue I got was you said "heaviest rainstorm, lost and in a rainforest" deluge".

That could do it for sure....

Ozone poisoning perhaps? It's more likely a combination of factors but ozone may have played a large part. Ozone poisoning can cause death by pulmonary embolism.

laryngospasm

No chance.

For the thoracic cavity to double in size... in such short amount of time.
It would have to take on vinegar. Not buying it.

This was a preexisting disorder.

He was probably allergic to water. Happens all the time
