VAPE HORROR Teen left in coma after developing lung disease from vaping everyday for three years


Maddie Nelson started feeling nauseous earlier this year but last month she began to experience severe back pain. The 18-year-old, of Utah, US, was rushed to hospital where her symptoms quickly worsened.

Doctors found that she had acute eosinophilic pneumonia – a rare disease caused by a build-up of white blood cells in the lungs in response to inflammation.

Maddie was given steroids to help combat the inflammation and still needs oxygen at night for tightness in her chest.

Nearly died

Earlier this month,  she shared photos of her in the hospital as she requested people to quit vaping.

She wrote: “I am sharing my story so you all are aware that there is something crazy in these pens that is not safe and almost cost me my life.
