1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Bad Laps", Way to Die #143, is the second death to be featured in "Sor-Dead Affair", which aired on February 29, 2012.


Sergeant Stu is a former drill sergeant turned swimming instructor for a women's swimming class. One of Stu's methods of torture was to double the temperature on the pool's heater, making the water incredibly hot. After his class complains, Stu challenges them to an endurance race, where if the women win, the class would be dismissed. Stu starts off at an early lead, but soon after, the women win after 20 laps. The women did not notice it, but Stu was floating dead in the water due to hyperthermia caused by his wetsuit trapping the pool's heat, leading to heart failure, sending the drill sergeant turned foolish swimming instructor to the hell he deserved.
