Of course, if he rolls over onto his back, he'll be down in no time.

# poor thing!

# Yeah
and it's still making me giggle...

# I was just thinking about that
I was actually quite upset about that. It must've been a horrific way to die.

# Thing is
I haven't seen anywhere that actually states HOW she died.

Frozen possibly?

Nasty :/

# more likely
asphyxiation, due to the lower air pressure... combined with the cold, but I don't think cold would be the prime factor - too low for really freezing temperatures.

# Hmm dunno
If you're high enough to lose oxygen then you're definitely high enough to freeze

*EDIT* Consider a climber up mount everest. They can still breathe (albeit with difficulty) but the temperature is way below freezing.

# a combination
of the both.

# Don't
they have oxy-ten masks though?
, Mon 9 Jun 2003, 15:18, archived)
# Yeah
But only to aid their breathing because they're exerting a lot of energy.
They don't actually need it to survive.
What they do need though is lots of warm clothing :)

# Just a bit of additional info
Here

Temperature drops much more quickly than air pressure in the atmosphere.

# it sounds horrendous
how long would the kid have stayed alive whilst travelling 40 miles? Did he/she die of shock or did the fall kill him/her? Very nasty

She didn't fall. She was found 100 metres from the balloon.

# Balloons?
Painful death? I suspect clowns are involved somewhere along the line...

# Don't know
Doesn't say in any new articles.
She was probably disentangled when the balloon crashed.

*EDIT* oops replied to wrong thread

Well considering recent events you resisted the urge to go to hell extremely commendably.
