Company To Pay Damages For A French Engineer Who Died While Having Sex

A man who died from a heart attack after having sex with a woman he met on a business trip is a 'victim of a professional accident', a French court has ruled. Xavier X, whose surname has not been released, was an engineer working in the Loiret département in central France on behalf of his employer, TSO, a French railway construction company. He met a local woman on a night in February 2013, but was found dead in his hotel room in Meung-sur-Loire shortly after the pair had sex.
