1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Phone Boned", Way to Die #662, is the first death featured in "Waking Up Dead", which was aired on February 3, 2010.


"Leanne began drifting into unconsciousness, until her cell phone reared its ugly head..."

A woman named Leanne goes to an acupuncturist to cure her addiction to texting due to headaches and other problems. While lying on her back during the treatment, Leann's cell phone begins to receive multiple texts. She tries to reach for it, but ends up falling to the floor face-down. She would have survived... if it wasn't for a acupuncture needle that was on Leann's chest which stabs her in the heart, killing her instantly.
