A Brit teen has tragically died after taking a sip of a pina colada while on holiday, a coroner has revealed.

Shiv Mistry was bound for Claire College at Cambridge University to study medicine later this year.

He was on holiday with his friends in the Costa del Sol in July when the tragedy took place.

Shiv suffered an anaphylactic shock after he was offered a sip of the cocktail that contained cow cream instead of coconut cream.

A GoFundMe page to raise funds for Anaphylaxis UK has been set up by his uncle Kalpesh Mistry.

On it he explained that Shiv, who had only recently turned 18, lived with a severe diary allergy.

The page read: "My Nephew, Shiv, had recently turned 18. He was in Spain with his friends to celebrate finishing his exams and looking forward to attending Claire College at Cambridge University to study Medicine later this year.

"Whilst holidaying in Spain, he sadly died, Shiv had an allergic reaction and went into anaphylactic shock. His friends, medics and police tried to revive him, but it was not possible.

"Shiv has lived with a dairy allergy since he was a little boy. As part of a request from the family, we would like to make donations in the memory of Shiv.

"Donations will be spilt some going to Anaphylaxis UK and to other worthwhile endeavours which will also aid people that have allergies and anaphylaxis by proactively using mobile and other technology."

Donations have poured in and far surpassed the original target of £1,000, with them currently at £11,139 at the time of writing.
