Question:

If it is 10 degrees outside, how long would it take the human body to freeze to death?

Answer:

When the body's core temperature gets into the upper 20's C (low 80's F), the heart will fibrillate, and that causes death. In a 10 degree environment death can occur in 15-45 minutes if unprotected.
