Abstract

The authors suggest to reserve the expression "combined" suicide to cases, where a combination of several suicide methods were previously intended. The other cases, where the victims proceed from ohne failing attempt to the other by using different methods and finally succeed after a certain period should be called "protracted" or "prolongated" suicides. Two typical cases are presented. In the first case a young man tried to commit suicide by causing a traffic accident, then tried to stab himself. Afterwards he ingested motor oil and tranquillizers and finally succeeds in jumping from a crane. The second case deals with an elderly man who tried to kill himself by stabbing at the chest and the head. After he failed, he was drinking kerosene and at last he was throwing himself out of a window.
