Some people are famous during their life and are forgotten after they die. Others become famous just after they die, and precisely because of the stupid way in which they have died. There are also rare cases of public figures who even after death can’t “refrain” from drawing attention.

[FONT=border=] 15. In 1990, an amateur magician died while trying to perform a stunt called “buried alive”. He lied in a glass-coffin built with his own hands and was buried. He was only partly covered with soil when the team helping him poured concrete onto the coffin to fill the hole. At some point, the team noticed that the concrete had broken through the glass, and by the time they pulled the coffin out, the man had already died.

Oh, 'sup Irony?!! :ciao:

What about Budd Dwyer? He is a classic death, shot himself in the mouth during a televised press conference, there's video of it too, which I of course had to search for and see :ph34r: It's pretty bad :no:

7. In 1923, jockey Frank Hayes suffered a heart-attack during a race. His horse, Sweet Kiss, finished first. Hayes thus became the first dead jockey to ever win a race.

11. A man drowned in a swimming-pool – nothing unusual so far. However, it is at least idiotic to drown in a pool at a party attended by at least 200 life guards. It happened in 1985, at the party organized by the life guards in, to celebrate a season without a single death. When the party was over, 31-year old Jerome Moody’s lifeless body was found. Nobody had noticed until then that the man had been floating dead.

13. In 1991, Yooket Paen died while taking a walk on his farm. He slipped and fell in a hole in ground, grabbed an electrical wire while falling and died electrocuted. At the funeral, his sister wanted to show the others how her brother had fallen; she slipped and accidentally touched the same wire. She also died electrocuted.

14. A man in Illinois made a bet with his friend: that he would be the one to lie longest on a railroad while a train was getting near. He won.

Sadly, I laughed out loud upon reading those without thinking. And now I'm a terrible person. Thank you ;).
