NEWS: Student collapses everytime she laughs

We understand that lately we've been bringing you weird news. But they are so funny and thought-provoking that we just can't refuse publishing it, like the following:

"Kay Underwood, 20, has cataplexy, which means that almost any sort of strong emotion triggers a dramatic weakening of her muscles.

Exhilaration, anger, fear, surprise, awe and even embarrassment can also cause sufferers to suddenly collapse on the spot.

Victims are often left paralysed for several minutes, although they always retain the ability to hear what is going on around them.

Kay, of Barrow-upon-Soar, Leicestershire, who was diagnosed with the condition five years ago, once collapsed more than 40 times in a single day."
