As BBC News reports, Amy Winehouse died as the unintended consequence of drinking too much alcohol. The inquest, which took place today at St. Pancras Coroners Court, has recorded that the singer’s death was as a result of “misadventure.” Coroner Suzanne Greenway said:

” Amy Winehouse had consumed sufficient alcohol at 416mg per decilitre (of blood) and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death. The unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels (of alcohol) was her sudden and unexpected death,”

Pathologist Suhail Baithun told the inquest into the singer’s death that Winehouse had consumed a “very large quantity of alcohol” — the level in her blood put her more than five times over the legal drunk-driving limit. Officials found three empty vodka bottles, two large and one small, at her flat in Camden.

Earlier reports suggested that the late and great songstress, who passed away in July at the age of 27, had died as a seizure from alcohol withdrawal, but the inquest has now said it was in fact excessive consumption of alcohol.
