Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Suicides due to plastic bag asphyxia have been reported in the literature but remain unusual. The circumstances of such deaths are reviewed and illustrated by the case of a 32-year-old male who was found dead in a lorry cab. The remarkable point is that the victim followed instructions from an American movie he had watched. This case emphasizes the importance of the investigation to determine the manner of death.
