Has anyone heard of "stythes" before?
"Donald Tollett, 60, died from suffocation after a freak weather phenomenon called a stythe caused a drop in air pressure, sucking carbon dioxide from a disused coal mine. He was walking through the Karva Woodcrafts factory unit in Widdrington Station, Northumberland, on 11 February, on his way to feed his neice's horse, accompanied by a family friend, David Wind, 8, and a pet dog when he and the collie were overcome."
