It was said that the unnamed 40-year-old man died over the weekend. Dr. Karen Haught, the Tulare County public health officer, said: “With sadness, we report that there has been a death of a Tulare County resident suspected to be related to severe pulmonary injury associated with vaping.” The California man is the second person to die in the state.

However, there have each been one reported death from vaping in other states including Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Oregon. Public health officials in California are now warning people to be aware of the potentially fatal risks involved with vaping in light of the most recent death. Over 400 people nationwide have come down with lung illness related to vaping.

The United States Centers for Disease Control announced Monday that they had activated their Emergency Operations Center to better investigate the outbreak of lung injuries associated with e-cigarettes, according to CNN.
