Un randonneur meurt en croyant manger du coscoll - Société

L'aconit est une herbe parmi les plus toxiques en Europe

Un septuagénaire est mort vendredi soir après avoir mangé une plante toxique ramassée dans le massif du Canigou, dans les Pyrénées-Orientales, rapporte France Bleu Roussillon dimanche 10 juin. Mais il a fait une erreur et a ramassé de l'aconit, une herbe parmi les plus toxiques en Europe. Ce visiteur et sa compagne de 75 ans ont en réalité cueilli de l'aconit, plante connue depuis l'Antiquité en vertu de la toxicité de ses alcaloïdes, autrefois utilisée dans le cadre de la chasse ou pour empoisonner de l'eau. Or, de retour de sa promenade, le couple a cuisiné ladite plante.

Ses jours ne sont plus en danger.

Son épouse, également âgée de 75 ans, est aussi hospitalisée à Perpignan. Une opération de secours a été engagée pour la retrouver. Dans la nuit de vendredi à samedi, la randonneuse est récupérée par les pompiers dans le secteur du refuge de Mariailles et transférée sur Perpignan, mais finalement il n'y a pas de conséquence grave pour elle. Le mois dernier, une famille entière a été gravement intoxiquée en Andorre à quelques kilomètres des Pyrénées-Orientales après avoir mangé une plante toxique trouvée en montagne.

Le couscouil est souvent consommé en salades ou encore dans les omelettes.
