How does burning to death feel like

    How does burning to death feel like

  • 1 You might die from carbon monoxide

    In large fires or house fires, carbon monoxide can cause death and thus the person might die before experiencing intense pain. See what does it feel like to die.

  • 2 Intense pain as the skin peels

    The skin is full of sensory receptors. The fire literally peels off the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, thus resulting in extreme pain.

  • 3 Intense shock

    According to some survivors of 3rd degree burns, there might be an intense shock in the beginning that the person feels almost no pain. The pain then starts as the shock fades.

  • 4 Pain stops after nerves burn

    As the nerve ends in the skin burn, the pain stops and the person feels nothing. Death usually happens by suffocation after that point. See how does it feel like to die drowning.

  • 5 The skin falls

    After some time, the skin peels and starts falling, thus exposing the inner organs. The process is extremely painful.

  • 6 3rd degree burns disintegrate bones

    3rd degree burns can disintegrate bones. This can be a very painful process. Many people don't survive 3rd Degree burns.

  • 7 Body fat leaks out

    The body fat starts leaking out after the skin starts to fall. The body fat can act as fuel; thus the body can keep burning for long.

  • 8 Internal organs fail

    As internal organs start burning, they decompose and fail. If the person doesn't died at this point then he will surely die as a result of that. See also how does it feel like to get shot.

  • 9 You can die from shock

    If the shock is so intense then your blood pressure might go very low as a result and you might die of the shock itself before feeling much pain.

  • 10 You might die of blood loss

    If the blood capillaries went into an inflammatory response then you might die as a result of blood loss. This can happen as the skin starts getting damaged. 

  • 11 You might get unconscious

    The carbon monoxide might make you unconscious before you feel any pain. In such a case, death might happen without pain.

  • 12 Lots of coughing

    As the fuel burns, it becomes harder and harder for the person to breath. Thus intense coughing might happen.
