There are those days in which either by fate, the mysterious alignment of the planets or a cluster of hypothetical coincidences, that if some misfortune has to occur to us, it will happen. Other times, it is simply and simply that human stupidity knows no limit, turning our lives into one of the scripts of the saga 'Final Destination' in which everything seems to be in conspiracy to kill us.
Every year, thousands of people die all over the world in such bizarre and strange ways that sometimes it is even hard to believe. But the ones you'll see in this article will surprise you as much as some may be as strange as others may seem.
Here are 12 of the strangest causes:
1- Use right-handed devices being left-handed
Nearly 2,500 left-handed people die every year from using devices designed for right-handers. If you are one of those who prioritize the left over the right, I would walk with an eye.
2- Eat hot dogs
This might seem like a joke, but unfortunately, a statistic reveals that about 70 children die every year axfisiados while eating hot dogs.
3- Autoerotic asphyxia
Frisking while having sex can be very exciting and enjoyable, however, it can become especially dangerous if you have to strangle yourself. Around 600 people die every year because of this strange sexual fetish.
4- Write by mobile
Every time we are more aware and deaths caused by traffic accidents are reduced over the years, however, about 572 teenagers die annually from texting while driving.
Most of us are not so good at doing two things at the same time as we believe. Remember that your message can wait until you reach your destination.
5- Roller coasters
Sad but true, one of the fun activities in the world costs the life of 4 people on average per year in the United States alone.
6- Falling out of bed
Maybe falling out of bed is not too scary; however, it is much more dangerous than we think. Seriously, we should start sleeping on the floor for safety. You may be surprised to learn that up to 1.8 million people visit the emergency room for a fall from the bed of which 450 end up causing death.
7- Use of vending machines
Surely you have ever introduced a coin in one of these machines and you have lost your temper when you contemplate how it was swallowed and absolutely nothing happened. Well, if you ever thought about shaking the machine until you get your precious snack, it would be better to assume your defeat and leave where you came if you do not want to lose more than the coin. Up to 13 people die each year crushed by these "innocent" machines.
8- Icicles of ice
Icicles are a whole danger during winter. Sharp as knives, they hang expectantly in the gutters of the houses until they fall on any unfortunate one who is just below. Only in Russia about 100 people die each year because of these landslides.
Sometimes, the photo Perfect is not worth it. Selfies have killed more people this year than sharks. Some of them due to falls, misdirections of those who had a gun in their hands, contact with electrical outlets or train accidents.
10- Fall of stairs
The number of people who die when falling down the stairs is approximately the same as for falling out of bed. In the United States alone, 477 people lose their lives every year because of a small misstep. We have to sleep, it's a risk we have to take, but nobody forces us to climb stairs. Throw the ladder to the rubbish now!
11- Electric stringing
If you're so reckless as to grab one of These cables, you will not know how dangerous they are until it's too late. Around 105 people die electrocuted when handling high voltage power lines every year in the United States.
The crush is another of the most common and easily avoidable causes that exists. About 103 Americans lose their lives when placed between two objects that clash with each other in a forceful way.
