Accidental Deaths You Won't Believe

Woman gets smashed by huge Taco Bell sign

Join me @ forangelsonly

Diana Durre, of Chambers, Nebraska, died after a 75-foot (23 m) Taco Bell sign
fell on top of the truck cab she was in. The pole broke at a welded joint about
15 feet (4.5 m) above the ground owing to strong winds. The sign fell right on
top of the quad-cab pickup. Diana was meeting a Wyoming couple to sell them
some dogs. They had agreed to meet in North Platte, Nebraska, at about 1 p.m.
, "right underneath the big Taco Bell sign." North Platte's Animal Control Division
took two Yorkie dogs to the shelter. The Wyoming couple showed up after the accident.

A suicidal woman who jumped from an eighth floor window crushed a passer-by
to death in a horrific accident. The woman hurled herself from the balcony in
Viladecans, near Barcelona, and landed on top of a 50-year-old pedestrian who
was walking below. The jumper died instantly, and the man, from the Ukraine,
died in hospital shortly afterwards from his injuries. His wife, who was walking
with him at the time, escaped with minor injuries in the incident, which happened
at 5.45 on a Monday evening.

A lawyer, demonstrating the safety of windows in a skyscraper,

crashed through a pane and plunged to his death

Garry Hoy, a 38-year old lawyer and a senior partner at the Holden Day Wilson Law
 firm in Toronto, Canada, fell to his death on July 9, 1993, after he threw himself
against a window on the 24th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Centre, in an attempt
to prove that the glass was "unbreakable" to a group of visiting law students.
He had apparently attempted this stunt many times in the past, having previously
 bounced harmlessly off the glass. His first attempt failed to damage the glass at all.
On his second attempt the glass still didn't break but instead actually popped out of
the window frame, and he fell over 300 feet to his death.

In a scene straight out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but with grim real life
consequences, Vincent Smith II, an employee at the Cocoa Services Inc. chocolate
factory in Camden, New Jersey, had a fatal accident. He was loading chunks of raw
chocolate, when he slipped and fell into a large melting tank filled with 50 C (120F)
Hershey's chocolate, and was knocked out by one of the mixing paddles. Smith was
trapped in the melting tank for 10 minutes before rescuers were able to extract him.
He was declared dead a short time later.

In 2003, an American amusement park operator was killed when his hair and arm
got caught on a roller coaster car, pulling him up as high as 12 metres before he
fell, back-first, onto a fence. Doug McKay, 40, was spraying lubricant on the tracks
 of the Super Loop 2, a ride at the Island County Fair on Whidbey Island, northwest
of Seattle, when his long hair got caught on a car full of fairgoers. It basically
scalped him, then he fell and landed on the fence.
