1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Frost-dead", Way to Die #293, is the second death to be featured in "Death: One Size Fits All", which has been originally aired on August 29, 2011.


A bumbling cryo-preservation company owner named John, who has been known to inject standard anti-freeze into his clients instead of the usual preservation material to prevent freeze damage, dies after breathing in pure liquid nitrogen from a tube that had come loose from a cryogenic tank he had failed to fix. It looks like John was the second victim to be with his patient, Warren, sending this disgruntled cryo-preservation engineer straight to Hell, where he belongs.

"Breathing in pure nitrogen gas was a good way to become one of his own clients."

Segment Nickname


  • It is likely this death could be based on an urban legend about Walt Disney, who was said to have been cryogenically frozen in order to be reanimated when medical technology became advanced enough. However, this has long since proven to be false; his body was simply cremated.
  • This death shares its number with Freeze Died (A death similar in the way the victims died from the cold temperature, as well as having the same name as Frost-Dead's alternative name)


  • Character Error: Warren can be seen breathing even though he's supposedly dead.
