5 Weird Ways People Have Died


Some people seem to have a death wish. They go out of their way to put themselves in harm’s way, often with tragic results. Here are five weird ways people have died.

1. Autoerotic Asphyxiation

This is a sexual practice in which people choke themselves or are choked by someone else in order to achieve sexual arousal. It’s incredibly dangerous, and has claimed the lives of many famous people, including David Carradine and Heath Ledger.

2. Self-Immolation

This is the act of setting oneself on fire. It’s usually done as a form of protest, but sometimes it’s done for other reasons, such as to escape from an abusive situation. It’s a very painful way to die, and often takes several minutes for the person to succumb to the flames.

3. Skydiving Without a Parachute

For some people, the thrill of jumping out of an airplane isn’t enough. They have to do it without a parachute. There have been a few people who have survived this, but most do not.

4. base Jumping

This is similar to skydiving, but instead of jumping out of an airplane, the person jumps from a tall building or other structure. Again, it’s incredibly dangerous, and very few people survive a base jump.

5. Snake Handling

Some religious groups handle snakes as part of their religious rituals. It’s extremely dangerous, and people have been known to die from snakebites.
