Abstract Central sections of the brain of a severely charred, mortified cadaver showed extensive centers of hemorrhage which had partly ovular and partly slash forms. There was no doubt of the traumatic origin of the hemorrhage. Whether the origin occurred vitally or post-mortum, could only be established after reconstructing the case at the scene of the event and checking the testimonies of the firemen. The origin was traced back to the use of force during the recovery action made on the body.
