1000 Ways To Die Wiki


"Chain Gang Banged", Way to Die #439, is the sixth death featured in "That's "Mister Death" To You", which aired on July 11, 2011.


Two prisoners named Mack and Billy are on a chain gang attempt to escape by jumping into the bed of a passing pickup truck. The truck driver was playing some ear-splitting country music, in which the driver didn't hear a thing outside, but when the chain of Mack and Billy's leg irons wrapped around the truck's hitch, they are dragged along the ground and die from blood loss, skull fracture and multiple bone fractures. The truck driver got out of his truck and realized that Mack and Billy were dead.
