Sridevi‘s untimely death took the entire world by surprise. While previously reports cited a massive cardiac arrest as the reason behind the death, in a recent turn of events, it has been concluded that the actor died due to accidental drowning. Dubai Police’s Twitter handle suggests, “Following the completion of post-mortem analysis, #DubaiPolice today stated that the death of Indian actress #Sridevi occurred due to drowning in her hotel apartment’s bathtub following loss of consciousness.” Additionally, the account also mentioned what is the next plan of action that they’re planning to take up in the case. The next tweet read, “#DubaiPolice has transferred the case to #Dubai Public Prosecution, which will carry out regular legal procedures followed in such cases.” PTI reported that according to the Dubai government sources, Sridevi drowned in the hotel bathtub following loss of consciousness, which only goes to reiterate that she was perfectly hale and hearty and did not die of cardiac arrest. However, many still can’t fathom the term ‘accidental drowning’ and what it means. Well, if you fall under this category, read on..

According to medical terminology, Accidental Drowning begins with “asphyxia, due to either laryngospasm or water aspiration. The second phase is characterised by water and electrolyte changes in the blood. The physio-pathological modifications caused by drowning in fresh water differ from those of drowning in sea water. The hypotonic fresh water quickly diffuses in the bloodstream. The consequences are, in many cases, hypervolemia with pulmonary edema, hemolysis, hyperkalemia with risk of ventricular fibrillation, diminution of haemoglobin, and a relative decrease in plasma concentration of Na, Cl, Ca, and albumin. Further, inactivation and washing out of the anti-atelectasis factor from the alveoli by fresh water facilitate the formation of atelectasis. In cases of accidental drowning in sea water the osmotic gradient is in inverse: the electrolytes of aspirated salt water diffuse in the circulation, whereas the blood serum and the plasma albumin pass into the alveoli. Acute pulmonary edema often follows these pathological changes. Hypovolemia with circulatory collapse, hemoconcentration with rise in hemoglobin, hematocrit, sodium, potassium and albumin, and, finally, an elevated risk of thromboembolism due to increased blood viscosity, represent further complications. On the other hand, ventricular fibrillation is rare, hemolysis is absent and atelectasis usually does not occur.” Also Read - Khushi Kapoor on Being Trolled For Her Appearance: People Still S**t on me For Not Looking Like my Mom

Well, we certainly won’t be surprised if you didn’t get any of it. To simplify, accidental drowning entails a person falling and submerging in water. While a person usually tries to take efforts to save oneself from drowning in such a situation, things can go entirely wrong if one isn’t able to save oneself from drowning. If one has already lost one’s consciousness and fallen in water, then there is a huge possibility of drowning. People could hit their head on something and lose their consciousness and fall in a pool of water. That is when they aren’t in a state to save themselves and can get submerged in water and eventually die. We are assuming that something similar could have happened with Sridevi as well.
