Bizarre, probably unpleasant, death.

What a strange way to go.

Unfortunately there's something almost comical about those stories, that is until you think about what a lingering death those people had, then it becomes awful.

I think it was Bill Bryson in one of his books mentioned the huge number of accidents-by-furniture that happen each year in the USA! I'll have to go look for it.

ANother thing I just looked for, but couldn't find, was a story I read about five years ago in the online Fortean Times. It concerned another bizarre death, this time of a man in Greece I think it was, who died while having sex with a chicken. In his case he was at the bottom of a quarry, busy doing what he was doing, when a huge boulder fell down on him, killing both him and the chicken. It sounds like a spoof, but it was for real - there was a police photo taken at the scene which left no doubt.

Ive got a real morbid fascination with the Strange Deaths section of the Fortean Times.

Lovin the chicken shagga story.... :laugh:
