Eluana Englaro Dies After Four Days of Starvation in Euthanasia Death

Rome, Italy -- After an international debate over whether she should be subjected to a painful starvation and dehydration death, Eluana Englaro has died. The disabled woman had been in a minimally conscious state since 1992, when she was involved in an automobile accident. http://www.lifenews.com/bio2739.html

Not really the same thing as euthanasia.

At least when it's euthanasia the individual gets to decide, and their death usually takes less than 4 days.

Starvation? Or dehydration?

Ever read a description of death by dehydration?

Dehydration will kill you a lot faster than starvation. With water she would likely have lasted a lot longer than 4 days. I think it's possible to live 2-3 weeks without food but less than a week without water.
