Explain why ice forming within a living organism may result in its death.

Candice/ Michelle (Whoever you are) I think if you read the link I left above for you, it will be clear.
If ice expands when it freezes and the cell wall/membrane can't stretch, what's going to happen. What does a balloon do when you put too much air in it?
