Curious and Unusual Deaths
- 2 Seasons
Discovery channel aired Curious and Unusual Deaths not long ago and it was a highly interesting series on strange deaths. It was a six episode series that explored some of the oddest and sometimes, grizzly deaths that have ever happened to a human being. Some of the deaths could have been avoided but they were and are curious and unusual deaths. For instance, there was a salesman who sold Bibles who was struck by lightning but it happened under a cloudless sky. It shouldn't have happened, but it did. Then another strange death occurred when a woman drowns in her cat dish but with only three inches of water in it! Still another strange death occurred in Manhattan in 1945 when a scientist by the name of Harry K. Daghlain was working on the Manhattan Project and somehow accidentally put two deadly materials together. Once the materials hit each other, there was a nuclear reaction which killed the scientist. Another odd death occurred in Canada when a lawyer by the name of Garry Hoy ran into a very thick glass window on the 24th floor of the Toronto Dominion Tower. The odd thing about this was that he ran into the window to prove that the window would not break; and that he would be alright. Shockingly, the window did break and he fell to his death, into a room of interns. This series was strange to watch but highly interesting and also showed what can happen if we're not careful or aware of our surroundings. This series also showed what can happen to anyone at anytime and it may not be the fault of anyone but only a mixture of time, chance and circumstance. Some episodes were very interesting but at the same time, shocking and hard to believe.
