Turns out, it was a Pneumothorax, which basically means his lungs collapsed.

After some history, it was found that the uncle had sung about 10 songs, all at a falsetto.

Surprisingly, in 2017, the Journal of Emergency Medicine reported a similar case too.

A 16-year-old girl had also suffered from a collapsed lung after she was reportedly screaming too loudly at a concert.

Pneumothorax is a life-threatening condition, though easy to treat.

However, if it is not treated early, it can instantly cause death.

So our advice is, as much as you love to sing your heart out, remember you gotta love your lungs too.
