1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Hammer Head", Way to Die #742, is the fourth death to be featured in "Young, Dumb, and Full of Death", which aired on November 9, 2010.


Chester was the school's new janitor at an all-girls' preparatory school, but he was secretly a pedophile. He usually spied on the girls playing field hockey with binoculars and a video camera. When one the girls made a wild swing that caused the ball to fly off course, Chester managed to dodge it. He was too distracted by filming the field hockey players that he failed to notice a member of the track and field team preparing for a hammer throw. The hammer hit Chester in the right side of his temple, causing immediate skull fracture which tore major blood vessels inside of his skull and instant death.
