List of Unusual Deaths
I thought this was pretty interesting. Check it out in your free time.
You'd be surprised


1911: Jack Daniel, distiller, died from blood poisoning. The infection started in his toe, which he injured kicking his safe in anger when he couldn't open it early one morning.

Well......

Yummmm.

Jack Daniels


Sorry, had to express my love for the old no.7.

I will look through the Unusual Deaths, always interesting to know what could be round the corner.

Haha...I've seen this before I think...these ones are good:

"2008: David Phyall, 58, the last resident in a block of flats due to be demolished in Bishopstoke, near Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom, cut his own head off with a chainsaw to highlight the injustice of being forced to move out."

- That's one way to highlight an injustice.

"2008: James Mason, 73, of Chardon, Ohio, died of heart failure after his wife exercised him to death in a public swimming pool. Christine Newton-John, 41, was seen on video tape pulling Mason around the pool and preventing him from getting out of the water 43 times."

- Exercised to death by the wife?


"2009: Sergey Tuganov, a 28-year-old Russian, bet two women that he could continuously have sex with them both for twelve hours. Several minutes after winning the $4,300 bet, he suffered a heart attack and died, apparently because of having ingested an entire bottle of Viagra just after accepting the bet."

- That's a mans death

"2008: Abigail Taylor, age 6, died nine months after several of her internal organs were partially sucked out of her lower body while she sat on an excessively powerful swimming pool drain. After several months, surgeons replaced her intestines and pancreas with donor organs. Unfortunately, she later succumbed to a rare transplant-related cancer."

- maybe if she wasn't 6 it would be funnier.

Women - swimming pools - chainsaws >> Death

Sorry can't give links, dates or names.

I read a book years & years ago on unusual deaths.

1. A man walking down street suddenly collapses dead on spot. No sign of injuries or heart-attack etc. When autopsied a small hole is discovered in the back of neck going straight down the spine. Conclusion was that an icicle had snapped off the wing of a aeroplane passing overhead at high altitude. The falling icicle, then stabbed down the man's spinal column. No blood at the scene of the accident as the icicle had sealed the wound.

2. A man walks home from pub drunk. Stops to open his front-door. He always carries his key on a piece of string around his neck. While unlocking the door, a gust of wind catches the door forcing it open. The man is pulled forward by the force of the door, trips over front-door-step twists & the subsquently is hung to death.

Believe it or not.

6th century BC: Legend says Greek wrestler Milo of Croton came upon a tree-trunk split with wedges. Testing his strength, he tried to rend it with his bare hands by inserting his fingers in the gap. The wedges fell, trapping his hands in the tree making him unable to defend himself from attacking wolves who devoured him.


I really shouldn't laugh but i just can't help it.

Should add this one to the list also...

www.islandpacket.com...

Man was walking along the beach and struck in the back by a plane making an emergency landing. Sad, but certainly bizarre.

Hopefully it's peaceful and quiet like my grandfather....unlike the other passengers in the vehicle...haha

sorry that's just wrong, but i had to say it

Interesting site non-the less. Can't believe the reporter that committed suicide on live air...would make you think twice about watching the news.

Peacefulness is best.

And about that reporter. It was crazy that she even had had the story for the news and even mentioned it to her producer if it was okay to talk about a suicide, and him not knowing it was her.

Death from Laughter

Sheesh... That would be odd. I remember seeing one of these on tv.




In the third century B.C., the Greek stoic philosopher Chrysippus died of laughter after giving his donkey wine, then seeing it attempt to feed on figs

1963, monks in Vietnam set themselves alight in protest of the brutality of war.

ETA:
Their bodies stayed upright for 15 minutes

Two questions:
1) Why and how would you get a donkey drunk?
2) How the heck can you cut off your own head with a chainsaw?

This sounds interesting.. when i have the time ill be looking into this one a little more.

1959: In the Dyatlov Pass incident, nine ski hikers in the Ural Mountains abandoned their camp in the middle of the night, some clad only in their underwear despite sub-zero weather. Six died of hypothermia and three by unexplained injuries. The corpses showed no signs of struggle, but one had a fatal skull fracture, two had major chest fractures, and one was missing her tongue. Soviet investigators determined only that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths, barring entry to the area for years.[73]

I remember hearing about that one awhile back. I wonder what really happened.

And that monk one aswell. I heard that the monk sat there with no expression as he burned alive. Thats incredible.

This had me in stitches for some reason, i hope it's true...in the nicest way possible.

1916: Grigori Rasputin, Russian mystic, was reportedly poisoned while dining with a political enemy, shot in the head, shot three more times, bludgeoned, and then thrown into a frozen river. When his body washed ashore, an autopsy showed the cause of death to be hypothermia. However, there is now some doubt about the credibility of this account. Another account said that he was poisoned, shot, and stabbed, at which time he got up and ran off - and was later found to have drowned in a frozen river.[
