Bronx Teen Confirmed To Be The First New Yorker To Die Of Vaping-Related Illness

A 17-year-old Bronx teen is unfortunately the first New Yorker to die of vaping-related illness, according to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

It was said that the boy was hospitalized in early September with a vaping-associated respiratory illness. He was readmitted to the hospital in late September and died Oct. 4. The health department is still investigating.

“This vaping is a public health crisis. It is affecting our young people,” Mr. Cuomo said Tuesday at an unrelated press conference. “Parents have to know, young people have to know, you are playing with your life when you play with this stuff.”

So far, the state said there were at least 110 reports from New York physicians of severe pulmonary illness among patients who said they were using at least one vape product before becoming ill. The state’s youngest reported patient is 14-years-old, and the oldest is 69.
