Yes folks, it seems that you could suffer a collapsed lung and die as a result from listening to music too loudly. Three young men died at a concert or club while a forth died in his car equipped with "1,000-watt bass box because he 'liked to listen to loud music.'" Oh man. I like to listen to loud music but I don't want to lose a lung either. Here's some medical jargon from the original story: "A pneumothorax occurs when a small rupture in one of the lungs allows air to leak into the space between the lungs and the chest wall, causing the lung to collapse. Symptoms include breathlessness and chest pain on the affected side. A small, partial collapse may resolve on its own, but more severe cases may require the insertion of a chest tube to allow the air to escape the chest cavity. Often, an underlying lung disease or chest injury is the culprit in pneumothorax. But so-called primary spontaneous pneumothorax happens in the absence of an underlying disease, typically striking tall, thin, male smokers." Good thing I'm not tall and don't smoke because I like listening to some loud music.
