Hi Erlangers,

I'm learning Cowboy and facing a peculiar issue.
*My handler code* is here. <https://pastebin.com/NQsrj1g0>

I have a rest endpoint (POST) and accessing it with Postman show a crash
report after giving response. But the very same request works find with

*CURL Request:*
curl -X POST -d '{"name":"M4ver1k"}' -i -H "User-Agent:
PostmanRuntime/7.6.1" -H "Cache-Control: no-cache" -H "postman-token:
cc241d1b-d2f0-488d-86ec-0a06bbb13234" -H "connection: keep-alive" -H
"Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H
"Accept: application/json" http://localhost:8080/api/

*Crash Report:*
