Take your pick... Suffocation (there's no air in space) Severe heamorraging as the cavities and blood vessels expand and rupture. (Space is a vacumn) Freezing. (It's very cold in space) Assuming you could survive all of that, the radiation from the sun would eventually kill you. Quite quickly if there happen's to be a star (like our sun) nearby that's going through a period instability; coronal mass ejections, solar flares etc..
