Abstract

A 56 year old man was found suspended in a sack in a head down position. Circumstances and autopsy findings are discussed. The leading pathophysiological mechanisms causing death are thought to be asphyxia due to compression of the chest and insufficient blood supply to the heart due to the head down position. The pathophysiological dysregulation of circulation in a head down position is discussed.
