“If you somehow choke to death on an ice cube, nobody would know how you died” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on April 26, 2018. However, several commenters have pointed out that a coroner would still be able to find the “ice cube” cause of death.

The coroner would probably detect swelling in the throat area where the ice cube was lodged.

Yes, if it blocked your windpipe. There would be oesophageal trauma and signs of suffocation, but it might not be obvious that you choked on ice.

If you choked on an ice cube inside an empty room, will people know how you died?

EDIT: Yes, they would know cause of death (asphyxiation) but not how or from what.

Choking to death on a solid object like that causes interal trauma to the esophagus. An autopsy would reveal it and if there is no solid food or objects in your stomach, they will put ice but it can’t be definitive.
