1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Crack Piped" Way to Die #151 is the third death to be featured in Grave Errors, which aired on March 2, 2011.


Two tunnel-working scam artists named Henry and Orson are attempting to exploit the pneumatic tubing systems of the early banks by cutting one of the tubes and inserting a block of wood to catch the money capsules. However; as more capsules back up in the line and negative pressure builds as they were enjoying their ill-gotten gains and forgetting about the backed-up pipe, they attempt to pull the block out. The pipe explodes after they manage to do so, becoming a makeshift bomb. Henry and Orson are killed when shards of the pipe impale them in vital areas.

"Henry and Orson weren't about to leave anything on the table. They strained to get to the rest of the loot. But in the end, their pipe dream...turned into a nightmare."
