Wrestler Died In Ring

Perro Aguayo Jr., a 35-year-old professional masked wrestler from Mexico, died during a live public wrestling-match in Tijuana on March 20th, 2015. During a tag-team match, Aguayo’s opponent, Rey Mysterio Jr., drop-kicked Aguayo in the back/shoulder area, causing him to fall forward and go limp against the ring’s ropes. Aguayo’s tag-team partner, Manik, jumped into the ring and proceeded with the match while Aguayo remained motionless against the ropes. Ringside officials attempted to revive Aguayo and immediately terminated the match when they realized he wasn’t responding. He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead on arrival. The cause of death was determined to be due to sudden cardiac arrest caused by a cervical stroke stemming from the fracture of three of his vertebrae, which he received from Mysterio’s drop-kick. An autopsy indicated that Aguayo died instantly as a result. The event occurred in front of a massive live audience and was being filmed by TV Azteca. The footage has since been made available on the Internet.

Deadly argument

Ghulam Rasul and Muhammad Sultan, two attempted suicide-bombers from Sargodha, Pakistan, died when one of their explosive suicide-vests detonated prematurely before reaching their target. While waiting on a bench on a city street before moving to an intended unknown target, Rasul and Sultan were reported by witnesses to have gotten into a heated argument with each other. The altercation apparently turned physical, and when one man shoved the other it resulted in one of their suicide-vests accidentally being activated. The resulting explosion killed both men instantaneously. Despite the street being relatively active during that time of day the incident occurred the two men were the only casualties. It is currently unknown what Rasul and Sultan’s original target was, as well as what they were arguing about and which man’s suicide-vest detonated.

Horrifying Escalator Accident

Xiang Liujuan, 30, was killed at the Anliang Mall in Jingzhou, China, when the floor-panel at the top of an escalator collapsed and she was pulled into the moving mechanical components underneath. Liujuan had just enough time to save her 2-year-old child by pushing him to a nearby employee before she was crushed to death. The entire incident was caught on a security-camera and has made its way onto the Internet. It took four hours for firefighters to recover what was left of her body.

Frozen to death at work in cryotherapy chamber

Chelsea Ake-Salvacion, a 24-year-old employee of a Las Vegas beauty salon, proclaimed the benefits of cryotherapy to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. An unorthodox treatment becoming more familiar, some say cryotherapy, which entails exposing the body to sub-zero temperatures, can have great benefits, particularly after a traditional facial and moisturizer treatment. So explained aesthetician Chelsea Ake-Salvacion. “We like to do the cryofacial afterward because it helps seal everything in.” Then came a bizarre twist. Before her comments were even published, Ake-Salvacion was dead — in her salon’s cryotherapy chamber. She froze to death in “seconds” after she entered the cryotherapy chamber alone at the Las Vegas salon. She had reportedly been in the machine for more than 10 hours when her body was found.
