PERSONS found hanging, who have committed suicide, are to be cut down instantly, and the same means employed to re establish breathing as in cases of drowning. It may help to restore the breathing, to bathe the forehead and face with vinegar, or tincture of camphor, and to pass hartshorn frequently under the nostrils.
