Unusual death of a farmer

Rabl,W.; Auer,M.
A farmer was found dead, in a pool of blood on his farm. Evidence indicated that the farmer had dragged himself or been dragged from the stable to the point where his body was found. With the exception of abrasions in the face, there were no other signs of injury. An autopsy revealed a depressed fracture of the skull and showed a venous air embolism to be the cause of death. The medicolegal interpretation of the findings left no doubt that the farmer was killed by a cow
