10 Of The Strangest Deaths In History

Death is a part of living in this world. At some point in our lives, every single one of us is going to pass away into the next world and leave behind plenty of loved ones who will miss us dearly. It is a sad, unfortunate truth, but it is also the reality of being a human being. The manner of our deaths, however, remains a current mystery. Some people could pass in their sleep, while others may be involved in a vehicular accident. Some, still, will be murdered by some heinous criminal. And yet there are some who will die in the most bizarre fashions possible. Here are ten such people.

Francis Bacon, the creator of the English essay, was gazing from a window on a snow afternoon in 1625. He then thought about how the cold could preserve meat. He then killed a chicken and stuffed snow into it. He developed terminal pneumonia while outside.

Horace Wells 1815 – 1848

Horace Wells, an American dentist, was a pioneer when it came to anesthesia. To stave off the screaming patients, he would use laughing gas to help them out. He later committed suicide by inhaling a lethal amount of chloroform.
