Passing On: What It’s Like To Die

Most of us have probably wondered what it is like to die – so scientists have tackled the issue head-on and revealed the macabre yet fascinating truth.

New Scientist magazine has pondered the subject in great depth in its latest issue, discussing the various ways of meeting one’s end, from being burned alive to drowning and decapitation.


Victims first panic and try to hold their breath, typically for 30 to 90 seconds. Survivors have reported a “tearing and burning” sensation as water enters the lungs – but it is quickly followed by a feeling of calmness and tranquility. Oxygen deprivation results in loss of consciousness, the heart stopping and brain death.
