"Backseat Die-er", Way to Die #105, is the sixth death featured in "Wild Wild Death", which aired on November 21, 2011.


Omar is a very incompetent paramedic who had been fired in three other cities around Missouri, but somehow got rehired in a fourth. He is joined by his new female coworker Lauren. When Lauren tells Omar to go into the back, the viewers learn the reason why Omar keeps getting fired: he's always getting high on the company's supply. When he gets high on nitrogenous oxide, he dreams that he's having sex with Lauren (for he has a crush on her) and started to play with the defibrillator. The defibrillator electrocutes him to death, much to the shock of Lauren.
