Ironic Deaths

Recommended Posts

A convicted murderer serving life in prison was killed shortly after escaping from a work detail in North Carolina when he crashed a stolen pickup truck, authorities say.

David Woods, 46, bolted his outside work assignment from Gaston Correctional Center on Monday and was reported missing just before 1 p.m. He was killed approximately 90 minutes later when he crashed the truck at an exit off Interstate 85.

The truck that Woods stole had belonged to the city of Lowell. It flipped over several times before landing in a ravine, and he died at the scene.

A Rosenberg man has been charged with manslaughter after he allegedly shot at another man wearing a bulletproof vest at a party in the Heights, Houston police said.

The accused shooter, Jason Griffin, 39, has also been charged with felon in possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of body armor.  Officers were dispatched early Sunday to a garage apartment in the 300 block of West 23rd, where a man had been shot in the chest. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.  Homicide investigators were working to determine whether the incident was the result of a dare. It was not immediately clear whether the bullet had gone through the vest or if the shooter had missed the vest.

Two Alabama brothers were harmed (one injured and one killed) due to their attempt to stop their father from committing suicide. The Blount County Sheriff’s Office reported that the 21- and 23-year-old sons were shot Thursday night after attempting to take away a gun from their father causing a struggle to ensue. After the gun was fired, one man was shot in the hand then the bullet traveled through, hitting his brother in the chest.

Sir Creep alerted me to this story but is currently driving 850 miles (!) and is out of signal.

 

Apologies if this has already been posted. If it has, it is in the wrong thread and will be deleted.

@Dead Wait posted it yesterday in an equally appropriate thread.

Fair enough, I just like this one, mainly because our dear departed King of Crows asked me to start it.

I know I shouldn't laugh, but my morning look at the latest deaths on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deaths_in_2018) did give me a good giggle:

"Aaron Traywick, 28, American life extension activist, drowned." All that gene therapy for life extension and no human gills yet:)

My ex-wife had a branch of her family tree with the surname Born.  I found the headstone of one of the long lost Borns (a teenager as I vaguely recollect) under some brambles and long forgotten.

Do I even need to tell you what a fucking bitch it was trying to do genealogical research on someone named Born?

Reminds me of the death of Bobby Leach. Think you're tough because you went down Niagara Falls in a barrel? Orange peel says "lol no".

Not a death, but....

 

A hairdresser was scalped in a horrific freak accident after her hair got caught in machinery when she fell asleep on a ferris wheel. Guyguy Salvador, 21, rode the fairground attraction with four friends after finishing work in Surigao del Sur in the Philippines on July 26. It is understood that she was exhausted after a long day and had fallen asleep inside the gondola when her long black hair got sucked into the ride’s machinery.
