Everyone dies at some point in their life, whether they are old or young at the moment it happens. That is a sad fact of life, and we need to make the most out of what we have today. However, there are some deaths that have occurred around the world that just make you stop and wonder whether it is actually true or not. Sometimes something so ridiculous happens that it just baffles the mind. These are twenty such deaths, where the victim will be remembered not for their heroics or honor, but for the way they passed into the next world.

Monkey Attack

While fending off a group of attacking monkeys in 2007, Surinder Singh Bajwa, the mayor of Delhi in India, fell off his balcony and died during the assault. The monkeys escaped, winning that particular battle.

Bearded Dangers

In 1567, Austrian Hans Steininger tripped over his own beard and died. The man had a beard so long that it reached down past his feet, which ultimately was a bad decision on his part, though it probably looked amazing.


Fake Out

In 1958, British television actor Gareth Jones was portraying a character on a television series that was supposed to have an on-screen heart attack. Unfortunately, Jones ended up having a heart attack at the exact same moment, and the crew thought he was simply acting.
