"Well Chung", Way to Die #252, is the fifth death to be featured on "Tweets From the Dead", which aired on March 26, 2012.
Wang-Chung was a street-side con artist who worked as a marketeer, but not just any merchants... he was a black market merchant. Wang-Chung had a small street-side bazaar where you could buy anything from protected animal organs to illegal weapons. The fact that a criminal like this could sell illegal goods in public was astonishing. One day, while making a pirated DVD sale, he gets a tip that the FBI agent is coming after him... right now. Wang-Chung immediately closes his bazaar and hastily hides in his camp-trailer, where he hides illegal fireworks. sure enough, the FBI arrives and begins investigating his street-corner. An hour later, Wang-Chung takes a lit cigarette and then puts it on a 6-pack of canned beverages. It falls off and lands on the fuse of a firecracker. Wang-Chung soon notices the lit fuse and the trouble he's in and a moment later... all hell breaks loose inside the small trailer. The initial explosion of the firework set off a huge, fiery, loud chain-reaction... with Wang-Chung crammed inside. Fireworks, firecrackers, bottle rockets, sparklers, popper-snappers and more all shoot everywhere in all directions, causing a catastrophic, forceful blast wave of blazing fire that no human could survive. When the explosions end, the FBI agent opens the door to find Wang-Chung's blackened corpse.
"Wang hides in his trailer to elude the agent. But an hour later, he has a hard time... avoiding his fate."
