Top Ten Unusual Ways People Have Actually Died

Turkeyasylum
When someone dies, you ma think it is of some disease, or other causes. But, these causes would be funny to explain at the funeral!

The Top Ten

1 A lawyer in Canada wanted to test the fact that the windows at his office in a skyscraper were unbreakable, but when he tried, the window popped out of its place and he fell to his death.

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. - TeamRocket747

Yet another "the ship's unsinkable" moment... - keycha1n

The window is such a filthy troll - CerealGuy

This happened in Montreal lmao

2 A person involved in an Ohio court case wanted to explain how the person that was "murdered" really killed themselves. As he demonstrated with a gun thought to be empty, he shot himself.

He at least made his point, and the man accused of murder was proven innocent. - Turkeyasylum

Great list and comments Turkey! For me it was between this and the guy trying the unbreakable window! - Billyv

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 - TeamRocket747

Someone just got fired. - Metalhead1997

3 Two unsupervised children decided to drop furniture from their 27th story apartment building onto civilians.

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"!

This is why I will never have kids. I don't want my furniture to get damaged. - TwilightKitsune

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. - Turkeyasylum

I hope they got grounded forever - Ihateschool

4 A man was bet by two women he couldn't have sex all day for $3,000. He succeeded on the bet, but it was due to him taking an entire bottle of male enhancement pills. He later died of heart complications.

It took that much effort to avoid sex? I know some people wouldn't call that a problem, but I would. - PositronWildhawk

I've got to warn the perverted people out there NOT to try this one at home. - Turkeyasylum

Wow. People should ban enchantment pills - JaysTop10List

Enchantment pills sound amazing Jay! - keycha1n

5 A man wanted to help his wife with her sore neck, and created something that worked like a noose. He wanted to test it so the it was safe, and when he did, he hung himself.

I've got to say it was a good thing he didn't use it on his wife... - Turkeyasylum

Tip: When u have a sore neck, see a doctor! Don't let people invent stuff for you!

Hubbie, my neck is killing me! - PositronWildhawk

6 A Chinese poet once drowned while embracing the reflection of the moon in a river, apparently kissing the reflection.

Kissing the reflection is clearly an understatement. That bloke was dunked to death, much like that woman who thought she was a biscuit. - PositronWildhawk

I have heard poets describing the urge to touch the moon reflection in water, but actually doing it? - NAH! This guy was epic

How careless can he be? - Animefan12

7 A man was delivered a bill for his own cremation, which was extremely expensive. He got a heart attack and then died. Ironically, after he did die, he was cremated at the same crematory he got a bill for.

Maybe this is how that Company has been marketing its products! Killingly Clever!

8 A Russian lady was wrongly recognized as dead, and woke up during her own funeral. She died of a heart attack after finding out she was in the casket about to get buried.

This is the perfect explanation of "buried alive".

Thanks for reading! - Turkeyasylum

I can imagine right after she really died, the people were like, "Okay, she's dead for real now, in she goes." - Rocko

Maybe she died twice! Like Monica's Nana

Awesome List, Turkeyasylum!

9 A Brazilian couple stopped in the middle of a busy highway, and were crashed into and killed. They stopped to have sex.

I'm pretty sure nobody should ever, ever try this on the I-75 (Only one of the busiest highways in Michigan). - Turkeyasylum

Now that is pretty disturbing. Why stop in the middle of a HIGHWAY? Do it somewhere else! - Minecraftcrazy530

I suppose its not a terrible way to go though... - keycha1n

Yep do not try this with out experience. if you want experience cone to me
