Hi,am kenyan ..and my dad just died two weeks ago.He had been a heavy drinker all his life.He died at 61 Years .But i am not sure what he died of.I just want to know what could have killed him.
On that day,he came home drunk and he slept but after some few hours he started snoring heavily and then at around 3a.m my mum was awoken by a very foul smell that was coming from his mouth,like something rotten,very bad smelling..he was not talking the whole time..By morning he was still snoring and there was something like a snoring sound in his stomach.
Previously his skin had become whitish,he is a naturally light skinned person though we are african.
There was something that felt hard and swollen in his stomach.They also said he spat stains of blood

In his final moments he winced like he was in deep pain and tears flowed from his eyes.
I was not there but i would like to understand his death ..Please help if u can.
Usually he drank local brews.:mad:
