Men all around the world can sympathise with this poor sod. Harrison was preparing to tee off in a leisurely round of golf when the shaft of his driver snapped and lodged in his groin. He subsequently died of blood loss. Golf: a good way to ruin a nice walk.

In a case of poetic justice, Godwin escaped the electric chair for murder, only to be electrocuted on his steel toilet seat whilst in his prison cell. Godwin was attempting to fix his headphones by biting into the wire. Note - Not an actual picture of an actual person, breathe easy!

Dianne Durre could have killed for a taco, but instead she was killed by one. Durre was innocently sitting in her pick up truck when a 22 metre wide Taco Bell sign fell 4.5 metres directly on top of her and her husband. Mr. Durre escaped with minor injuries as he had previously eaten a late breakfast (Zing!).

In what must be the worlds best example of karma being an absolute bitch; Sigurd had claimed the prize of a decapitated enemy head by attaching it to his horse's saddle. Not to be denied his revenge, the teeth of the decapitated head grazed Sigurd's leg as he rode, causing an infection that killed him soon after.

Robert Jones

Who'd have thought going for a quiet jog on the beach with your Ipod would lead to you being six feet under? Certainly not Mr Jones, who was struck by an Aeroplane performing an emergency landing on a deserted beach (or so the pilot thought). It was later discovered that grease had sprayed on the cockpit windscreen, causing the pilot to lose vision.

Roger Wallace

An entire Congolese soccer team died after the pitch they were playing on was struck by lightning. Miraculously, the opposition survived unscathed, leading locals to blame witchcraft and sourcery for the incident. I say it's just damn unlucky.

Ronald McClagish

Brian Parry

Surely the most ironic death on the list, Brian Parry fatally shot himself whilst attending a gun safety course. Now here's what not to do..

Uroko Onoja

Uroko Onoja

MaxViral

it sounds like Onoja was just obeying the age old rule of saying yes to the missus. Being forced to have sex with 5 of your 6 polygamist wives but collapsing dead after the fourth doesn't sounds like it would be the absolute worst way to go.

Garry Hoy

Garry Hoy

This genius tried to prove the window glass of his office was unbreakable, so he threw himself into it. Hilariously, he was right, but he didn't account for the window popping out of its frame and allowing him free access to the pavement 24 floors below.

The Great Beer Flood of 1814

The Great Beer
  Flood of 1814

How can something that makes us so happy do something so evil? London was the scene of one of the great historical injustices when thousands of litres of beer escaped from their vats, rendering them undrinkable. Oh, and eight people died as well.

Clement Vallamdigham

The number one award goes to the most dedicated lawyer of all time. Vallamdigham accidentally shot himself to death after demonstrating that the victim of a murder trial could have accidentally shot himself. Whatever gets you the result Clement!
