need help for my forensic project!

so our project is to either prove if a suicidal death can be done or if it was a myth. our case deals with a guy who turned on his power saw and cut his radial artery with it and bled to death. we have to prove if the victim would actually bleed to death from cutting thier radial artery with a power saw or if it they would die from cutting both instead. so basically would he die or would he be severely injured. we need to have 5 sources of opinions and we figured this would be a good place to get one, anything would help, thanks

I believe you can bleed to death from that kind of injury, so yeah.

I think the guy's death could be a suicide. Cutting the radial artery is a common method of suicide. If he had enough time to bleed out, it's very possible. You can go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_methods for more information.

but would the cut from the saw blade kill him if it cuts his radial artery?

No the loss of blood kills him, the saw blade technically would not have been the actual cause of death
