Latori Barman, a 45-year-old farm-laborer from Madhya Pradesh, India, was accidentally buried alive by a team of road-workers. Barman had been walking home while heavily intoxicated and fell into a large pothole where he passed-out for the night. That same night, crews of road-workers were repairing potholes, and without seeing Barman lying down inside of one they filled it in with liquid asphalt and ran it over with a steam-roller. The accident was only discovered the next morning when part of a human arm was seen sticking through a part of the road’s surface and the section of asphalt was exhumed.

19-year-old Elizabeth Conway Nass and Rose Louese Mayr were hanging out together on a railroad bridge in Ellicott City, Maryland when the CSX train carrying loads of coal passed behind them and suddenly derailed, sending train cars and coal hurdling to the streets below. The bodies of the two girls wound up being found buried under mounds of coal.
Just moments before the train derailed, the girls posted a couple of updates on Twitter detailing their final night out. One tweet said, “Drinking on top of the Ellicott City sign,” followed by, “Looking down on old ec.”
And the last tweet that was posted is especially haunting, as it read “Levitating,” along with a picture of their bare feet hanging off the railroad bridge.
