‘Natural death’ in a confinement cell

Probable scenario

Batha was found dead in a confinement cell this Thursday 2nd of March 2017 in the closed centre of Vottem. He had been isolated there 36 hours earlier because he had mutilated his neck with a razor blade. According to the information gathererd, no doctor went to see him.

‘Natural death’ says the medical examiner.
‘The cell was flooded with blood’ says a worker of the centre.

He is bleeding, alone in a cell, drop after drop during hours…
His body empties itself of its blood… drop after drop…
The heart and breathing rate accelerate in order to bring more oxygen to the vital organs…
His blood pressure is decreasing…
His organs are getting less and less oxygen…
His brain cells are dying…
The collapse is coming…
His lungs are making efforts to continue…
He can no longer breathe..
The muscles of his heart are lacking oxygen and his heart stops…

This lasted VERY long, more than 36 hours…  a horrible death… a natural death… a useless death…
