Way to Die #396
On December 7, 2008, in Orlando, FL. An accident-prone home shopping network salesman survives falling off a ladder and getting a piece of a samurai sword lodged in his chest (which miraculously caused no fatal damage). After returning to work from the hospital from the samurai sword incident, he advertises a flannel one-piece pajama. Still wearing the pajamas, he then advertises some aromatherapy candles. When the sleeve touches the lit candles he is engulfed in flames. The stage manager tries to put out the fire with an extinguisher, but the extinguisher clogs. The salesman dies from severe burns all over his body.

Way to Die #203
On November 21, 2009, in Hollywood, CA. A former reality TV star, under the delusion that she's still famous, snorts cocaine at a party using a platinum coke straw. A man attempts to take the woman's picture as she's snorting cocaine, and treats the privacy invasion as a paparazzi attack. She calls in her bodyguard, who snatches the camera from the man and punches him in the face. The man falls on top of the reality show star as she's doing a line, and the coke straw gets lodged in her nose, puncturing her frontal lobe and causing a fatal brain hemorrhage.

On September 14, 2003, in Rochester, NY. A new janitor at an all-girls preparatory school lurks outside with a video camera recording teenaged field hockey players as they practice. When one of the girls notices this, she tries to hit him with the field hockey ball. The janitor ducks out of the way and continues to film them—only to get the side of his skull crushed in by a hammer thrower who threw her hammer too far.

On August 9, 2009, in Chicago, IL. A skilled, yet washed-up skateboarder is out skating one day. His board goes over a rock, and he falls face first down a staircase into some wet cement.

Way to Die #47 (Note: This is the second death to have this number)
On June 22, 2006, in Palo Alto, CA. A corporate leader who was only hired because his father owned the company leads an employee retreat. After failing to catch his volunteer during the trust fall exercise, he dresses up in a sumo suit, and sumo-wrestles an opponent (coincidentally, his opponent was the woman whom the man forgot to catch during the trust fall exercise). However, he set up the sumo ring too close to the edge of a cliff, and he is pushed off it by his opponent. He survives the fall because of his padded sumo suit, but ends up getting fatally hit by a Smart Car.

Way to Die #345
On May 21, 2008, in Defiance, OH. A man addicted to survival nature shows sets out to film himself making a spring salad from allegedly safe plants, only to become violently ill after eating them. The actual ingredients of the salad were oleander, an herb that causes heart palpitations, foxglove, a gastrointestinal irritant that causes vomiting and diarrhea, and nature's most dangerous plant: hemlock, creating a trifecta of symptoms that kills him shortly afterwards.
