Top Ten Unusual Ways People Have Actually DiedWhen someone dies, you may think it is of some disease, or other causes. But, these causes would be funny to explain at the funeral!
Garry Hoy, a lawyer in Toronto, Ontario, fell to his death from the 24th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Centre while demonstrating to a group of visitors that the building's windows were "unbreakable". Hoy threw himself against the glass, which indeed did not break; instead the window popped out of its frame.
I think he was, in fact, drunk and showing off his windows' unbreakability to his friends.
Yet another "the ship's unsinkable" moment...
Did he win a Darwin?
Clement Vallandigham, a lawyer and Ohio politician defending a man accused of murder, accidentally shot himself while demonstrating how the victim might have accidentally shot himself. His client was cleared
Great list and comments Turkey! For me it was between this and the guy trying the unbreakable window!
He at least made his point, and the man accused of murder was proven innocent.
Hey the accused got off. Good lawyer if you ask me.
First of all, where were the parents? The judicial system should have severed their parental rights before the first couch hit the ground. If only I could have been a fly on the wall when They met with the insurance adjuster. "what do you mean it's not covered". All I had to deal with was waking up after dozing off, only to discover that my toddler had used a permanent marker and scribbled all over my neck, arms and legs. There is a reason they call it "permanent"!
They didn't know they were civilians, and when asked why they were doing this, they replied they were trying to crush those "ant-looking things" on the main floor. Theu started off with food, but later even threw a television off.
No! the poor furniture was probably really damaged! And the poor children were probably grounded, too!
This is why I will never have kids. I don't want my furniture to get damaged.
It took that much effort to avoid sex? I know some people wouldn't call that a problem, but I would.
I've got to warn the perverted people out there NOT to try this one at home.
That is just too much of a sex craving. Society is pathetic.
Wow. People should ban enchantment pills
Kissing the reflection is clearly an understatement. That bloke was dunked to death, much like that woman who thought she was a biscuit.
He or she was pretty clearly either some wise philosopher or an absolute idiot, or maybe even both.
I have heard poets describing the urge to touch the moon reflection in water, but actually doing it? - NAH! This guy was epic
He was either very wise or very stupid. I lean towards the latter.
I've got to say it was a good thing he didn't use it on his wife...
That's awful. The poor man was trying to help his wife and died doing it
I'm pretty sure nobody should ever, ever try this on the I-75 (Only one of the busiest highways in Michigan).
Now that is pretty disturbing. Why stop in the middle of a HIGHWAY? Do it somewhere else!
I suppose its not a terrible way to go though...
Again that's just craving sex too much.
I can imagine right after she really died, the people were like, "Okay, she's dead for real now, in she goes."
Can't of happened. No one sleeps for 2 or 3 weeks.
A burial or cremation does not take place straight away
This is the perfect explanation of "buried alive".
Thanks for reading!
Maybe she died twice! Like Monica's Nana
Maybe the guards should have not all been partying and SAVED them.
It was really wrong of me to laugh at that, but it's so darn funny!
I mean good job, but not good job.
Maybe this is how that Company has been marketing its products! Killingly Clever!
I mean, sure, they always told you to "dream big", but damn...
How weird do you have to be?
I guess he was just meant to die via electric chair.
What? This can really happen?
I didn't know donkeys liked to eat figs!
Man. I think I could die of laughter. I laugh a lot.
Most cabbage patch dolls aren't dangerous, but, the cabbage patch snacktime doll is dangerous because if you stick your finger in its mouth when feeding the doll toy food, the doll can bite your finger off.
Only two nuclear bombs have ever been used in war. Both on japanese cities.
