‘How can bathtub drown her’: When Sridevi, Jim Morrison, Whitney Houston met the same fate Featured

Written by  Feb 27, 2018

As legendary actor Sridevi’s sudden demise has left millions of fans heartbroken, the uncertainty over the actress' unfortunate death has intensified with no clarity on when her body would be released. The 54-year-old actor, known as Indian cinema's first woman superstar, passed away in her hotel room in the Jumeirah Emirates Towers late on Saturday.

The police had yesterday recorded the statement of her filmmaker husband Boney Kapoor, who reportedly discovered Sridevi unconscious in the bathtub filled with water. She was taken to a hospital where she was declared dead on arrival. Dubai-based Gulf News said in a report the actor was under the influence of alcohol. She fell into the bathtub and drowned, it added.

Amidst all this, conspiracy theories regarding her bathtub death have started doing the rounds. While the initial buzz was that Sridevi died of cardiac arrest, the autopsy report claiming the actress dying of 'accidental drowning' has ignited a debate. From Boney Kapoor’s interrogation and his surprise arrival in Dubai a day later to Sridevi being under the influence of alcohol and 'how can bathtub drown her (Sridevi)?', everything is being questioned by the public.

But as bathtub deaths seem like an alien concept in India, such tragedies have been previously recorded in countries such as Japan and US. Talking about celebrities, noted names like Jim Morrison, Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown have also died in bathtubs.

For the unversed, Jim Morrison (28) of the Doors was found dead in a bathtub in Paris. While no autopsy was done, it was said that he died of drug overdose in 1971. Similarly, Whitney Houston was found dead on February 11, 2012, in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, just hours before a pre-Grammy party at the age of 48. Interestingly, veteran actress Simi Garewal recently said on Twitter that she finds 'uncanny similarities in the death of Sridevi and Whitney Houston.' On the other hand, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was also found unconscious and facedown in a bathtub on Jan. 31, 2015. Her autopsy too revealed presence of alcohol and prescription medicines in her blood.

While in India, only a handful of studies have such bathroom-as-an-accident-site data, a report in The Times of India quotes data of The Center for Diseases Control in Atlanta, US from 2015, which claims that bathrooms - "the smallest room in the house" - could be dangerous. The report further suggested that over two lakh people aged over 15 visit hospital emergency rooms every year because of bathroom injuries. It was further revealed that victims are more often women, perhaps because of their lower-body strength and bone mass.
