It relates to cases where the homicide is caused by negligence. It does not apply to cases where the death has arisen, not from the negligent or rash mode of doing the act, but from some result supervening upon the act which could not have been anticipated. Under this section rash or negligent act must be the direct or proximate cause of death. The two essential elements are:

  1. Rash or negligent act,
  2. Not amounting to culpable homicide.
