Death of People in Pompeii

Death of People in Pompeiiimage

As a pyroclastic flow races toward Pompeii,
people in the town fear for their lives.  Thousands of years later,
when excavators began to uncover what had happened in Pompeii,
residents' bodies were found - positioned just as they had died.

Their deaths were not instantaneous:





The first breath inhales hot gas and ash, causing the lungs to fill
with fluid.  It's like swallowing fire.  The second breath mixes ash
with the fluid, creating a wet cement in the lungs and windpipe.  The
third breath thickens the cement, causing the victims to gasp for breath
- and suffocate............
