The alligator one is my pick. How can you get in the water when you know there is a twelve foot gator in there with you?? That is just crazy.

I can see someone dying accidentally if they're a stunt-person in a film doing a dangerous stunt. Or, something like the horrible tragedy that happened to the actor Brandon Lee on the set of the film The Crow. Those are accidents.

However, these people were just fools....

Described as “fit” and in her 30s, the woman swapped details after the accident - but it wasn’t until van bosses checked the footage from the camera at the back of the vehicle that they noticed what caused the crash.

The woman had been using a sex toy on herself, possibly to alleviate the boredom of traffic.
