1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Back Broke Mountain", Way to Die #111, is the third death to be featured in "Come On, Get Deathy", which aired on January 20, 2010.


Wanda and her husband, Marco, were out taking a hike near a cliff. He had originally planned to divorce her, but he later had planned to murder her to collect her insurance. During the hike, Marco excuses himself from Wanda to secretly call his lover. Thinking Marco was peeing in the bushes, Wanda informs him to come on. When they view the scenery, Marco begins the plan, making it look like he's taking a picture of him and Wanda with his camera phone. However, Wanda shoves Marco off the edge of the cliff by accident after trying to fight him off in self-defense. This results in a treacherous tumble, strait to the base of the mountain. During the fall, the rocky mountainside breaks many of his bones. The mountainside broke his back, crushed his spine, shattered his skull, snapped his neck, broke his arms and legs, destroyed his internal organs, caused irreversible brain damage, unfathomable agony, and total annihilation, sending the attempted-killing husband to the hell as he deserves. ‘As much as Wanda wanted to get rid of Marco, this was not how she imagined it’
