1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Chemi-killed", Way to Die #405, is the sixth death featured in "Grave Errors", which aired on March 2, 2011.


A lab assistant named Deedra learns the rejection from her married co-worker Dr. William Stelgis who had sex with her and regretted it. Suddenly, Dr. Stelgis goes back to his life and his wife, Mrs. Sally Stelgis. Deedra furiously gets enraged and goes on a rampage in the laboratory, destroying his latest experiments. She grabs a flask of sodium azide and smashes it into a sink full of water and chemicals. The sodium azide converts to hydrogen azide gas, which burns the skin off her face and destroys her lungs, killing her, thus sending her to hell, where she belongs to.

"Deedra was eager to continue their research. Dr. Stelgis, however, had a different opinion about their...breakthrough. Stelgis ended it, and headed back to his life, and his wife. But hell hath no fury like a lab assistant scorned."
