Bright red lividity on the dorsal side of the body as the expression of lethal  carbon monoxide poisoning. Livor mortis is bright red in cases of carbon  monoxide or hydrocyanide poisoning (or in cases where the corpse is kept in cold  storage). Carbon monoxide is a colourless and odourless gas that arises, for  example, from incomplete fuel combustion. Thus it is always necessary –  primarily for self-protection – to consider or exclude carbon monoxide  poisoning, particularly when bodies with bright red lividity are found in engine  rooms, after engine room fires (automatic carbon dioxide fire extinguishing  system!) or in boiler houses.”
