NY has now reported the first death related to an epidemic of vaping-related illnesses, with the state health department saying the male victim is a 17-year-old from the Bronx.

The teen first became ill with a vaping-related lung illness in September. He passed away on October 4. "I can tell you as a person who was young and stupid and smoked, it is an addiction you will fight for your entire life", said Cuomo.

Nationwide, there have been 19 deaths reported and more than 1,000 being afflicted with severe vaping-related lung illnesses.

"We had our first death and the State Department of Health is investigating the details of it. Parents have to know, young people have to know: you are playing with your life when you play with this stuff".

Cuomo said in his statement today, "The President has talked about taking action".
