Can a person laugh themself to death?

I read years ago, probably in a dubious source, that it’s possible to laugh so hard that your diaphram can spasm or cramp, thus making it impossible to breathe. So you suffocate.

I chose to believe this, but it’s time to bust it if false: Is it really possible?

[I know about the Monty Python deadly joke]

[grammarians: prefer “themself” to “himself or herself”]

Let’s find out:

The stoic philosopher Chrysippus supposedly laughed himself to death after watching a donkey (perhaps drunk) eat some figs.
