LUTZ, Fla. - Two college students were found dead inside a large, deflated helium balloon after apparently pulling it down and crawling inside it, officials said.

The deaths of Jason Ackerman and Sara Rydman, both 21, appear to be accidental, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Maj. Bob Schrader said.
Their bodies were found Saturday partially inside a deflated helium balloon at the entrance of a condominium complex a few miles north of Tampa. The 8-foot-diameter balloon was used to advertise the complex.
"It was more a fun thing they thought they were doing," said Linda Rydman, whose daughter was found dead. "You know how you blow up the balloon and suck the helium."
The county medical examiner said Sunday that the cause of death won't be released for six weeks, until toxicology results come back....

Lutz, Florida? I have lived in Florida all my life, and I have travled all around Florida. I have never once seen any indication of the existance of a city/town/county called "Lutz"

they would have been breathing helium. so they would feel like they were breathing, but they wouldnt be getting any oxygen.

then you haven't been near tampa. it's a little hick town. frankly these kind of stories aren't too surprising if you read "Dateline: Lutz" in the lead.
