Mahsa Amini's cause of death revealed: No blow to head, limbs
An Iranian coroner's report says Mahsa Amini's death was caused by multiple organ failure caused by cerebral hypoxia, i.e. lack of oxygen to the brain.
An Iranian coroner's report into the death of Mahsa Amini found that the Iranian woman's death was "not caused by blow to the head and limbs," IRNA reported on Friday.
In a statement, the coroner's report indicated that Amini's death was caused by multiple organ failure caused by cerebral hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to the brain.
According to the report, Amini underwent brain surgery at the Milad Hospital in Tehran when she was eight years old.
The deceased suffered from an imbalance in the hypothalamus gland after her operation, so she was under medical treatment since then.
The Iranian expert concluded that on September 13, at 07:56 pm, Amini lost consciousness, and due to her previous illness, she suffered from extremely low blood pressure.
"Due to the ineffective cardio-respiratory resuscitation in the first critical minutes, she suffered severe hypoxia and as a result brain damage despite recovery from cardiac functioning," the report explained.
"She died due to multiple organ failure caused by cerebral hypoxia," it indicated.
It is noteworthy that on September 21, the Director General of Forensic Medicine in Tehran Province said that there are no traces of beating or wounds on the head and face of Amini.
"Concerning the misleading information about blood coming out of Amini's ears and a fracture at the base of her skull, we, forensic doctors, confirm that there are no signs of bruising or swelling on her eye and no fracture in her skull either," the Director General said.
The forensic report showed that there are no signs of skull fracture, and the autopsy conducted on Amini's body revealed no bleeding or rupture of her internal organs.
According to the Director General of Forensic Medicine in Tehran, more time is needed to find the actual cause of Amini's death in order to issue a final report based on the results of the analysis of the taken samples.
It is worth noting that "Mahsa Amini underwent a brain surgery in a hospital in Tehran in 2006," as revealed by the Director General.
The death of the 22-year-old Iranian woman on September 16 incited a wave of protests and riots eventually proven to be Western-backed following her arrest by the police in Tehran.
The story as it is
After contacting several official sources in Iran, Al Mayadeen learned that Amini was never assaulted, beaten, or abused, and the proof was CCTV footage that slammed western reports as fake and fabricated.
The incident, recorded by the CCTV, shows a female police officer approaching Amini and pointing at her hijab. Amini and the officer entered into a verbal disagreement, after which the officer turned around and left Amini alone.
At this point, and without any physical altercation taking place between the two - contrary to western media reports which claimed that Amini was brutally beaten - Amini fainted and it was later reported that she fell into a coma. The police officer can be seen rushing to support Amini to prevent her from falling. Amini was then transferred to the hospital for treatment.
The video shows that there was no violence and no beating whatsoever and that not even an arrest was made. Official sources told Al Mayadeen that Amini had a brain tumor and that she has been undergoing treatment for some time prior to the incident. Medical records confirm Amini's multiple visits to the hospital for treatment.
