The report presents a medico-legal and toxicological analysis of cases of drowning. Within eleven years, 184 cases of deaths by drowning were observed in our Department. The majority of victims died because of a tragic accident, while in three cases death was a result of suicide. Toxicological observations showed that most victims were under the influence of alcohol. In isolated cases, blood carboxyhemoglobin and delta9tetrahydrocanabinnol were detected.
