Most unusual Deaths


I found the best wikipedia page: The list of Unusual deaths and here are some of my favourites. Warning that some of these are graphic.

10) A 25 year old woman from Ottawa, Ontario and Steven Leon, 40, of Gatineau, Quebec, died after an airborne American black bear smashed through the windshield of their SUV Near Luskville, Quebec. The bear had been hit by another vehicle, launching it into the oncoming lane where it landed on the SUV

9)  Humberto Hernandez, a 24-year-old Oakland, California resident, was killed after being struck in the face by an airborne fire hydrant while walking. A passing car had struck the fire hydrant and the water pressure shot the hydrant at Hernandez with enough force to kill him

8)  Richard Sumner, a British artist suffering from schizophrenia, went into a remote section of Clocaenog Forest in DenbighshireWales, handcuffed himself to a tree and threw the keys out of his reach. His skeleton was discovered three years later.

7)  Owen Hart, a Canadian-born professional wrestler for WWF, died while performing a stunt where he was to be lowered into the ring from the rafters of the Kemper Arena on a safety harness. The safety latch was accidentally released early and Owen dropped 78 feet (24 m) and landed chest-first on the top rope, severing his aorta.

6) Jeremy Brenno, a 16 year-old golfer from Gloversville, New York, was killed when he threw his club against a bench in a fit of rage, breaking the shaft. Part of the shaft bounced back and pierced his heart.




5)  Franco Brun, a 22-year-old prisoner at Toronto East Detention Centre, in Toronto, Ontario, choked to death after attempting to swallow a Gideon's Bible.

4) James Frederick Polley, a 23-year-old from Raytown, Missouri, died while riding the Fire In The Hole ride in Branson, Missouri, at Silver Dollar City theme park. The train of cars he was riding in was mistakenly switched to enter the maintenance and storage area of the ride. The door to the maintenance area had a low-hanging bay door and his head got caught between the door and the train.

3)  Alex Mitchell, a 50-year-old from Norfolk, England, died laughing while watching The Goodies. A particular scene had caused Mitchell to laugh nonstop for twenty-five minutes before dying of heart failure.

2) Basil Brown, a 48-year-old health food advocate from Croydon, drank himself to death with carrot juice.

1) Thích Quảng Đức, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, sat down in the middle of a busy intersection in Saigon, covered himself in gasoline, and lit himself on fire, burning himself to death.

Laughing yourself to death? Now that's just creepy.

Thích Quảng Đức, was actually protesting, which explains his actions.

These are pretty interesting, I'm never surprised at what wikipedia has to offer. Some of those would look cool as hell in a movie.
