A Japanese man died from seizures Friday, on a flight from Mexico City after he reportedly consumed 246 bags of cocaine.

The 42-year-old man, identified by authorities only as Udo N, died from seizures caused by a cerebral oedema, or swelling in the brain, aboard a flight bound for Japan from Mexico city.

His death was triggered by a drug overdose from consuming 246 plastic bags filled with cocaine, each measuring 2.5 cm long and 1 cm wide, which were found in his intestines and stomach during an autopsy, according to the Attorney General of Sonora.

Udo N’s medical emergency caused the plane, along with its 198 other passengers, to make an emergency landing at General Ignacio Pesqueira International Airport in the city of Hermosillo, Mexico, according to the BBC. He was declared dead shortly after the plane landed, the Washington Post reports.

Udo N had reportedly transferred flights in Mexico City, his journey starting in Bogotá, Colombia, the BBC reports.

Mexican federal authorities are conducting further investigation, the BBC says.
