A 37-year-old woman found dead in a Jacuzzi: A case report

A 37-year-old woman found dead in a Jacuzzi: A case report

Medico-Legal Journal 84(3): 159-161

One of the main problems in forensic medicine is the autopsy diagnosis of drowning, especially in the case of delay in the victim's recovery. The body of a 37-year-old woman was delivered to Kahrizak autopsy centre for post mortem. She was drowned in a public Jacuzzi because when she bent down to pick up her hairpin from the bottom of the Jacuzzi, her right arm became stuck in the drainage pipe and was sucked in. Unfortunately, she was not resuscitated after being pulled out of the Jacuzzi. The ambulance arrived too late, and she was already dead on arrival at the hospital. Her family pursued a claim against the managers and personnel of the pool for poor security management and failure to resuscitate. A forensic examination was needed to determine the manner of her death (natural, accidental, suicide and homicide).
