Top 10 Crazy Ways to Die
This is a stunt that no one should probably perform. Why would you want to prove the strength of the window glass on the twenty fourth floor of your hotel by colliding with it in a hope of bouncing back? Introducing Garry Hoy, a Toronto lawyer who pulled that stunt on July 9, 1993. Apparently, Mr. Hoy had performed the same feat in the past without incident, he always just bounced right off the glass as the onlookers chuckled and glanced at each other nervously. Unfortunately for him, this time the window glass wasn't as strong as always and what followed him was his untimely death.
#9 Your husband's coffin
Generally when you go to bury someone after a death, you dont expect any mishaps anytime soon. But for Marciana Silva Barcilos, the story was different. On November 10, 2008, a funeral procession was on its way to a cemetery in Alvorada. Barcelos, 67, was a passenger in the hearse carrying the body of her husband, Josi Silveira Coimbra, who had died the day before. Suddenly, a speeding car struck the back of the hearse. Dislodged by the accident, Josi's coffin hurtled forward and smashed into the back of Marciana's neck, killing her instantly.
#8 Insane fit of laughter
We often hear that laughter is the best medicine. people say that laughing is very good for health. But every effective things comes with a side effect. A modern day case, An interesting modern-day case is that of Alex Mitchell, an English bricklayer. On March 24, 1975, Mitchell laughed for 25 straight minutes after watching an episode of The Goodies entitled "Kung Fu Kapers." His widow later thanked the program for providing her husband with such a delightful death experience.
Number of people have Elevator phobia. I think they know about this case. Dr. Hitoshi Nikaidoh, a doctor at Christus St. Joseph Hospital in Houston, TX was stepping into a hospital elevator one Saturday morning, the doors closed too early and pinned his shoulders. The safety system that prevents elevator doors from trapping passengers failed, and as the elevator ascended, Dr. Nikaidoh's body went one way and his head went the other. Now after reading this, who all are planning to avoid the elevators for rest of your life?
I know sex is supposed to be fun and not mortal but wait, you dont know these stories. Sergey Tuganov, a 28-year-old Russian who suffered a severe case of death after betting two women he could have sex with them for 12 straight hours. He won the $4,300 bet and then promptly died. Doctors determined that his death was caused by the entire bottle of Viagra pills he ingested before attempting the feat of sexual endurance. At least the last 12 hours of his life were happy hours.
Also, Kenneth Pinyon died from injuries suffered while ummm having anal sex with an Arabian stallion. Pinyon regularly engaged in bestiality and had his performances videotaped and distributed under the name "Mr. Hands." On July 2, 2005, however, Mr. Hands made love to one last horse before succumbing to "acute peritonitis due to perforation of the colon." Translation: Mr. Butt couldn't take Mr. You-Know-What.
#5 Floods, but not the water kind
Floods are usually associated with water. And nothing wrong in it. But the kind of floods we are talking about has got nothing to do with H2O. The London Beer Flood, October 1814, nine people died after a 22-foot high, 130,000-gallon vat of porter burst at the Meux & Co. Brewery. The enormous volume of beer caused other vats to rupture as well, and more than 300,000 gallons of beer smashed its way through brick walls and blasted into the slums of St. Giles, a London parish. The sound of the explosion was reportedly heard up to five miles away.
In another case, On January 1919, 21 people expired when a 50-foot high storage tank full of molasses exploded and unleashed a crazy wave of sticky death through Boston's North End. The warm weather apparently helped build pressure inside the poorly-constructed tank, eventually causing an explosion. Several city blocks were flooded, and the wave was high and strong enough to lift a freaking train off the Elevated Railway tracks. Now this is really crazy.
#4 Video Games
We use them as stress buster, fun, enjoyment. They are our source of relaxation. But they can kill us. You don't believe me? Wait, n 1981, a 19-year-old gamer named Jeff Dailey became the first official video game victim. After racking up an impressive 16,660 points while playing the game "Berzerk," Jeff toppled over and died of a heart attack.
And ya, Less than two years later, 18-year old Peter Burkowski also died of a heart attack while playing the same game. Wait, i am not yet done.
In August 2005, South Korean Lee Seung Seop died of exhaustion after playing Starcraft online for 50 hours straight in an Internet cafe.
And in January 2007, A 28-year-old woman named Jennifer Strange died of hyponatremia (water intoxication) after participating in a contest at a local radio station. In order to win a Nintendo Wii, the contestants competed to see who could drink the most water without taking a potty break. Strange ingested enough water to severely dilute the sodium levels in her bloodstream and bring about her death.
#3 Your own wooden leg
Now this is insane. You dont get to see such cases nowadays. In 1649, Aston was serving as governor of Drogheda, Ireland. In an attempt to help establish Ireland as a power base for the English Royalist cause, he had joined forces with the Marquis of Osmond, the Commander-in-Chief of Royalist forces in Ireland. In September of that year, Oliver Cromwell and his troops stormed the city and proceeded to massacre most of its inhabitants. When Parliamentary soldiers captured the governor, they had two main priorities 1) kill this guy, and 2) check for gold coins inside his wooden leg. There weren't any coins, but Aston was literally beaten brainless with his own leg in the process of not finding any gold.
#2 Exploding lakes
Now no one wants to die in this kind of mishap. How deadly is this? Although such incidents occur rarely , but that's exactly how Lake Nyos decided to off nearly 1,800 people in 1986.
Thanks to a pool of magma 50 miles below the surface, dangerous gases had been collecting at the bottom of the crater lake.
On August 21, a rare natural phenomenon known as limnic eruption unleashed a murderous bubble of carbon dioxide upon the surrounding villages. Most lakes have water layers that mix or "turn over" frequently, allowing gases to escape slowly into the atmosphere.
Limnic eruption occurs when a deep water layer becomes saturated with dissolved gases over a long period of time. These gases are then released by some sort of trigger for example, a landslide, heavy rainfall, or an earthquake that displaces the saturated water and allows the gases to come out of solution. All at once, the lake overturns with a huge explosion. It's like shaking up a soda can and spraying it, except with a lot more death and destruction.
#1 Your enemy's severed head
Now most of you might think that we are joking as this kind of death is next to impossible. But wait, Sigurd the Mighty, the ninth-century Viking Earl of Orkney, died a particularly ironic death after returning from a successful battle. Having defeated his foe Mael Brigte, Sigurd strapped the Pict's severed head to his saddle and headed home. As he was riding, however, Mael's tooth scraped against Sigurd's leg and caused a sore that later became infected in a fatal sort of way. Now this was truly crazy..
