A MALLORCA woman survived carbon monoxide poisoning that killed her husband because she was wearing a special device designed to stop her snoring.

The 45-year-old woman was discovered close to death beside the body of her dead husband in their bed at a rural property in Sant Joan in the centre of the island on Tuesday afternoon.
