"American Died'ol", Way to Die #897, is the sixth death featured in "A New App Called Death", which aired April 2, 2012.


A rather arrogant African American woman named Chantal deliberately cuts in line during a talent search for the next big pop music star in the musical reality show called Star Machine.

All of a sudden, a freak windstorm blows her umbrella out of her hands and sends it crashing down, wedging into her spinal cord like a spear and causing her to die from neurogenic shock.
