    In a shocking twist, the Dubai authorities confirmed that Sridevi's death occurred due to 'accidental drowning' and many questions are left unanswered as how a stable person can drown in a bath tub all by themselves. Khaleej Times spoke to a forensic expert Bhoopesh K Sharma for an opinion and this is what he has to say about accidental drowning.

    Emergency Situations

    Emergency situations like heart attack, stroke and sudden seizures can lead a person to drown in a bath tub.

    Unconscious Stage

    These type of emergency situations make a person fall into a semi-conscious or unconscious stage, thus resulting in drowning.

    Even Simple Reasons Can Cause Drowning

    Not only emergency situations, even simple exhaustion and fatigue can result in a person drowning in a bath tub, states Bhoopesh K Sharma.

    Incapable To React

    The drowning occurs as the person is incapable to react on time after being submerged underwater, thus causing death.

    Brain Vs Body Signals

    When the human mind is blocked and the body receives no signals from the brain and that too while being submerged underwater, the inevitable happens.

    Completely Possible
