    A case of suicide using a device known as a “power head” is presented. The devices, which are used in underwater fishing and other activities, are common and readily available in many areas where diving is practiced, but we are unaware of previously published cases of fatal injuries resulting from their use. The appearance and functioning of a power head are described, as well as regulations concerning the devices.
