A couple in here I hadn't heard of:


7.:40for the worst stage dive, suprisingly in Leeds! Singer Patrick Sherry fluffed a stage dive and landed head first on the floor mortally injuring himself.

The one after that is the now infamous Spanish zoophile who got crushed by the rock while performing with a chicken.

A terrible mix up.

A man died after swallowing a glass of pipe cleaning fluid that he mistook for Ribena after a night out drinking.

Langdon Doidge, 59, began vomiting blood and called 999 after drinking the beer line cleaner, which he kept in the fridge at his Cardiff Bay flat. The purple liquid was in a Robinson's squash bottle next to the Ribena, coroner Sarah Richards was told.Mr Doidge died of multiple organ failure 19 days later. The coroner concluded his death was misadventure.

'Bikini hiker' dies from exposure after falling down a gorge in Taiwan. Very sad story, and it isn't clear from this report what she was wearing, but if she was in her bikini rather than more traditional kit, you can't help but feel this may have contributed to her death from hypothermia.

She seemed quite experienced (sat phone, etc.) - I wouldn't be surprised if she had bad-weather clothing with her but lost the pack in the fall and couldn't reach it.

She was an experienced and always well-prepared and equipped hiker. The 'Bikini Hiker' nickname comes from her gimmick of posing in prettier clothing for summit photos.

Very sad. :(

Identical twin brothers were found hanged from the same tree in a park in a tragic suicide pact, an inquest heard.

The bodies of Neil and Paul Micklewright were found by a dog walker in Davyhulme Park, in Urmston, at about 8.40am on Tuesday, July 31, last year.

Notes found in their pocket of both brothers were described as ‘essentially identical’ by assistant coroner Jason Wells.
