Hemothorax - how frequent?

Recommended Posts

Stabbing as a suicidal method? Pretty rare, I`d say, at least nowadays.

In the past such a way was nothing that uncommon, though.

"To fall on your own sword".

Most common example may be Varus, or the ritual suicide of japanese Samurais. In Ancient Rome, to kill yourself with your own sword was deemed a honourable way to kill yourself.
