In brief: Cold injury can kill

organ tissue, however it requires exposure time for that to happen.
The colder the temperature, the less exposure time necessary. For example, at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, it may take longer for a tissue to die than at 15 degrees F. The mechanism involves degeneration of live tissue due to direct physical contact with frozen intracellular fluid as well inability to exchange materials across membra
