Hanging-delayed death (a rare phenomenon)

Hanging-delayed death (a rare phenomenon)

Medicine, Science, and the Law 40(3): 270-272

Hanging is one of the most common methods of suicide in India in which death of the individual occurs instantaneously. However, a few cases have been reported in literature in which death has occurred after a certain period of time or the patient has survived after prolonged resuscitative measures. A case of a 20-year-old female is described who survived for nine days after hanging, remaining unconscious throughout in the hospital. She died due to cerebral damage caused by cerebral anoxia.
