Death because of Hypothermia

Freezing to death is one of the most peaceful and non-violent ways of natural dying. After the shivering stops and you slip into hypothermia, it’s pretty much a warm and fuzzy sensation until you slowly doze off as your vital organs slowly begin to shutdown. The reason people get that warm and fuzzy feeling is because before that moment body tries to store warm blood in and around vital organs, away from extremities, if the person stays in cold the body gives up and releases the blood back to the body, giving a brief warm feeling before dying.

You reach a point where your body core thinks it’s too hot, some victims of hypothermia are found naked, having stripped their clothes off because they literally thought they were overheating. It’s called paradoxical undressing.

Twenty to fifty percent of hypothermia deaths are associated with paradoxical undressing. This typically occurs during moderate to severe hypothermia, as the person becomes disoriented, confused, and combative. They may begin discarding their clothing, which, in turn, increases the rate of heat loss. One explanation for the effect is a cold-induced malfunction of the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that regulates body temperature. Another explanation is that the muscles contracting peripheral blood vessels become exhausted (known as a loss of vasomotor tone) and relax, leading to a sudden surge of blood (and heat) to the extremities, fooling the person into feeling overheated.
