A teen has reportedly died after getting a love bite from his girlfriend that caused him to have a stroke .
Julio Macias Gonzalez started having convulsions at the dinner table with his family in Mexico City after spending an evening with his girlfriend.
Paramedics were dispatched to the scene but the 17-year-old could not be saved.
It is thought that the suction of the love bite – also known as a ‘hickey’ – caused a blood clot that travelled to Julio’s brain and caused him to have a stroke.
His 24-year-old girlfriend has now disappeared and the boy’s parents are apparently now blaming her for his death.
What is a love bite?
Love bites, also known as hickeys, are bruise-like marks on a person's body - typically the neck.
They are caused by a person sucking on a small area of another person's skin.
This causes small blood vessels under the skin to burst - causing the bruise.
Love bites usually last for anything up to 12 days.
The only way to treat them - aside from hiding them under make-up or a polar neck jumper - is to put ice on them to reduce the swelling.
