This is, even that you have a normally bodily funcion (no hart-problem).
I´ve heard, fpr example that many who participates in wars don´t die frpm the 
shots frpm the gun. Instead they die from the chock (I don´t know if this is the 
bodily chock (anafylactic?) - loosing bloodpressure and so on - BUT my question 
is if one can die from a psychological chock, i.e. fright)??
