Inventor Creates ‘Death Capsule’, ‘Suicide booth’ Asks Three Questions Before Suffocating User


AN INVENTOR has unveiled a grisly “suicide booth” that asks three questions before suffocating its user.

Doctor Philip Nitschke has been dubbed “Dr Death” and “the Elon Musk of assisted suicide” for his work in the controversial medical area.

He made headlines after declaring his Sarco capsule could be operated in Switzerland soon.

The 3D-printed coffin-like pod is filled with nitrogen, swiftly bringing oxygen down from 21 per cent to only 1 per cent in about 30 seconds.

A “disorientated” and “euphoric” feeling then follows, before users ultimately lose consciousness.

Death takes place due to hypoxia (low oxygen in the body’s tissues) and hypocapnia (reduced carbon dioxide in the blood), ensued by critical oxygen and carbon dioxide deprivation.

“We’re ready to use it… we’re talking to a number of people who are wanting to be the first to use it,” Netherlands-based Dr Nitschke told MailOnline.

He continued: “The person will climb into the machine, they will be asked three questions and they will answer verbally – ‘Who are you?’, ‘Where are you?’ and ‘Do you know what happens if you press the button?’ 

“And if they answer those questions verbally, the software then switches the power on so that the button can then be pressed.

“And if they press the button they will die very quickly.”

Dr Nitschke, whose Exit International organisation came up with the capsule, told local madia there is “no panic, no choking feeling”.

Around 1,300 people ended their life using assisted suicide in Switzerland last year.

The Swiss government is yet to make clear whether it intends to allow use of the capsule.

Both assisted suicide and euthanasia are illegal in the UK.

For anyone struggling to cope, call Samaritans for free on 116 123 or contact other sources of support, such as those listed on the NHS’s help for suicidal thoughts webpage.
