Ocean_City_Maryland_Lifeguard_Hurricane_Earl
Jerome Moody is the man who miraculously managed to die at a party for life guards. The party was ironically celebrating their first drowning-free season. The party had four lifeguards on duty, and had invited 100 lifeguards as guests to the party. With an army trained life guards it’s hard to imagine someone being able to drown. Jerome Moody somehow managed to drown at the bottom of the deep end, and nobody found him until the party had ended and the lifeguards started clearing out the pool. He could have been down there for hours with nobody noticing. Once the lifeguards found him they tried desperately to revive him but he was already dead, and couldn’t be brought back.

Kenji Urada is only one of two men to have ever been killed by a robot. The bizarre death happened in 1981,while he was ordered to repair a malfunctioning robot in a Kawasaki Heavy Industries plant. While he repaired the robot he failed to turn it off completely, and the robot turned on it’s master, and pushed him into a grinding machine with it’s hydraulic arm. The Engineer died, and the company kept this death a secret until December 8th, after an investigation by the Labour Standards Bureau. With AI being an inevitable future the idea of people being killed by robots is a scary, and not unrealistic one, but it’s comforting to know that the only two people to have been killed by robots died in the 70’s and 80’s.

Oscar Barbosa

fish-1162057_1280 bizarre deaths

Oscar Barbosa was a fisherman who threw himself into a piranha infested river. This was a gruesome suspected suicide. The police believe it to be a suicide because the man was a fisherman who knew the river well. He wouldn’t have been unaware that man eating piranhas were in the water but threw himself in anyway. The fisherman was drunk, which probably impeded his judgement at the time, but if the action was premeditated then it may have just been to lessen the pain. Piranhas can be vicious killers, and even have one of the strongest bites in the world.
