Sometimes the tissue is frozen, sometimes it is just “stunned” enough to cut off the air supply. The military teaches it for cold weather purposes, and the term alcohol poisoning encompasses both the ingestion of sub-freezing fluids and the behavior changes due to consumption that are the cause of death.
Unless you do a biopsy to check the tissue the ingestion appears to be unrelated to the cause of death, and in many cases it is not frozen, just stunned enough to stop breathiing.
