The insured died from the effects of carbon monoxide gas generated by an automobile in a closed garage. The policy which he held in the defendant company provided for compensation only if the means of death were accidental, and the insurer-resisted the claim of his beneficiary for the reason that, even if the death was accidental, it was not a death by accidental means. Held, that if the result is unexpected, death resulting from an intententional act is a death by accidental means. Wiger v. Mutual Life Ins. Co. of New York (Wis. 1931) 236 N.W. 535.
