Bassist nearly killed - by cashew nuts

Bassist nearly killed - by cashew nuts - 2005-06-06

2005-06-06 - It might sound funny, but it definitely was not. Absolutely not.<br><br>HAMMERFALL bassist Magnus Ros&eacute;n, 42, nearly died from an allergy shock on a flight to Chile this past Tuesday (May 31).<br><br>&quot;I could barely breathe, nobody understood me, and I didn't get any help. The panic took over my body,&quot; Ros&eacute;n told the Swedish newspaper <a href="http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/noje/story/0,2789,654245,00.html" target="_blank"><u>Aftonbladet</u></a>.<br><br>Magnus
Ros&eacute;n's big misfortune was that the peanuts he received aboard the plane were mixed with cashew nuts, which he is allergic to. &quot;My tongue and throat quickly swelled up and I got hives all over my body. I could barely speak,&quot; the HAMMERFALL bassist said on the phone from Chile, one of the stops on the band's current South American tour.<br><br>What made the situation worse was the fact that the flight attendants on the Brazilian airline Varig could barely speak English. &quot;The situation got totally crazy because they thought I wanted more nuts! I just got worse and the panic started crwling through my body,&quot; Magnus said.<br><br>Finally at least one of them understood that he was in a state of emergency. The crew brought out a medical box full of supplies that they had no idea how to use. &quot;They called an medical emergency number in the U.S. to help them,&quot; Magnus said. &quot;Finally, two doctors who were passengers on the flight came forward to offer their assistance.&quot; The first cortizone shot only helped marginally. &quot;Then I received another one so strong that I passed out,&quot; Magnus said. &quot;They woke me up once every half hour to check on me.&quot; Since then he's been extremely tired but happy to be alive.<br><br>&quot;I just about managed through the first show, but now it feels better,&quot; said Magnus Ros&eacute;n. <br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=26"><u>HAMMERFALL</u></a>&quot;
