On Sunday October 19 a Gerona couple collected wild mushrooms which they decided to eat for dinner.

The following day, the 56-year-old woman started to feel ill and went to the Santa Caterina de Salt Hospital in Gerona, Cataluña, where she was seen by doctors and then sent home.

At 4pm on Wednesday October 22 she was admitted to Josep Trueta Hospital and died four hours later due to multiple organ failure. Her husband, who also ate the mushrooms, was also admitted to hospital but declared stable and not in danger.

Tests determined that the patient had eaten Amanita Phalloides, a highly toxic mushroom.
