is common to describe that the woman died because of the injuries.
Cambridge Dictionary's style is to highlight (boldface) the proper prepositions that a particular word in concern takes.
Say - succumbed (verb) which means to 'die'
Thousands of cows have succumbed to the disease in the past few months.
Cows died because of the disease. So, it is -
succumbed to + the reason of death
But then, I see many headlines that read 'succumbed to death'. And they mean that someone 'died'.
My question is - what does 'succumbed to death' mean? Just 'death' (then why use 'succumbed to') or 'death because of' (but then, succumbed to [reason (and not the word 'death')] is expected)!
