    Hello Mas,i follow this forum with interest and was wondering if you know of any documented cases of an asthmatic individual having a fatal reaction to pepper sprays.I would think that pepper spray would induce a more severe reaction in someone with already compromised breathing functions. Thank you.

    Smorin, while I've heard anecdotally of very rare deaths in respiratory illness sufferers who were pepper sprayed, I don't have any on file and can't confirm. You might want to try a Google search.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help,
