Drunk woman dies in cemetery accident.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – An inebriated Belgian woman died in a freak accident when she ended up beneath a heavy grave stone at a cemetery, local news agency Belga said Wednesday.

The 33-year-old was on her way home from a bar in the Belgian town of Pulle in the early hours of Saturday when she took a short cut through the cemetery.

But she urgently needed to relieve herself and crouched down between two gravestones. As she lost her balance, she grabbed one of the stones which gave way and landed on top of her.

The public prosecutor’s office said she died of suffocation as she was unable to lift the heavy stone.

That’s an impressive way to go.

  1. Impressive, yes. Tragic, yes. Embarrassing, yes. Nobel, no.

    I guess we can’t all go down in a blaze of glory… like Princess Diana. ;)

  2. Nobel or noble?

    Do they give out Nobel Prizes for embarrassing deaths? I thought that’s basically what the Darwin Awards are for.

    If it’s not noble to die while you’re pissing between two headstones, surely it’s not any better to die while you’re fellating an Egyptian penis in the back of a car.

  3. Both of course.

    Possibly, but if you are actually fellating your driver’s penis while he is intoxicated and travelling through a tunnel at a high speed with your Egyptian boyfriend watching on as you are being chased by photographers causing the car to ultimately crash, well that could be a better way to die than by being crushed by a headstone.
