That's got to be one of the most horrific ways to die.

As the song says " the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep".  What's your best scenario for death?

I always reckoned that Chinese lass who fell into the escalator machinery through a panel that hadn't been screwed in discovered a pretty horrific way to get into a dead state.

I'd like to die just after having said that 'years from now, I bet I'll look back and laugh about this.'   There's a character in my novel-length story, just being finished, that is thinking something along those lines, just before his demise.

Hold on. She was operating a grinder at the Economy Locker Storage Company? Do they have industrial meat grinding going on in a 'storage' facility?

Horrific workplace story in a similar vein.

I work in a recycling plant and we operate two balers. These basically crush up cardboard or plastic into cubes and basically consist of conveyor belts leading to a chute/ hopper in which everything leads to a compactor. There's a huge amount of safety mechanisms involved such as sensor belts worn by every operative in case anyone falls in, cut-off keys on the main operating panels (basically consist of several keys, if even ONE key is removed, then the whole system cannot start up) - so this means if someone happens to climb inside the hopper to clear out any debris, they need to keep a key on their person and alert the shift supervisor or line manager.

Anyway, we were told by one of our H+S reps that in a different plant some guy had climbed into the compactor on the lunch break to clear out a few pieces of metal that had accidentally fallen inside the hopper which would have damaged the interior.... You can see where this is going right?

The dickhead had ignored pretty much all the safety procedures involved, thinking that because everyone was on lunch break and him activating the emergency stop button, nobody would activate the baler.... However instead of removing one of the keys which would have prevented the baler from operating and placing it inside his pocket, he'd taken a quick chance and climbed inside the fucking thing leaving all the keys inside the control panel.

But some poor bastard had come off his lunch break early, closed the gate and reset the baler. And because the baling machine is incredibly loud (and everyone is required to wear ear plugs) - nobody heard his screams... The stupid dickhead was crushed slowly to death and then bound up in wire and then forced through a small(ish) hole...

People only realised when the blood began pooling out into the exit area of the baler.

The worst part of it for me is knowing how slowly the machine operates, so this idiot would probably have known he was going to die for about two minutes, no doubt banging and screaming on the other side of the safety gate, knowing full well that nobody knew he was inside - no supervisor, no manager, no precautions as the awful clanking machine slowly prepared its mechanisms and eventually crushed him into a cube.

Even now i'm terrified of it. Horrible way to die...

It's to separate any likeness of my forum handle from the character from Red Dwarf. The avatar likeness is purely accidental.

I think in that mincing, I'd want my head to be chewed up by the sharp metal gears first.  Rather than the slow, agonising pain of feet, legs, arse then the slow grinding up of the torso.

How about sideways? Left side of face, arms, torso and legs all at once. You'd probably be dead before it even reached your left teste.

This is a bad one (NSFW); a man falling into a trash compactor.  It's the speed from which he goes from doing his humdrum mundane everyday job to finding himself within the compactor that disturbs me the most.  That and his futile attempt to raise his arm to try and stop the machinery.

However, at least it was a quick death because I reckon the worst work related deaths, and one of the absolutely worst ways to go, is being cooked alive...

Quote
Employees searched for 62-year-old Jose Melena after he went missing during an early morning shift at Bumble Bee Foods.

He had been performing maintenance in a 35-foot long oven at the plant when a co-worker filled the pressure cooker with more than five tonnes of canned tuna and switched it on.

The colleague mistakenly believed Melena was in the bathroom – but he was locked inside the machine, which reached a temperature of 132C.

His body was only found two hours later when the oven was turned off and opened.

A factory worker died from severe burns when he became trapped in an industrial oven, Liverpool Crown Court has heard.

Alan Catterall, 54, used a crowbar to try to escape from the oven he was cleaning at Pyranha Mouldings Ltd in Runcorn, in December 2010.

Another worker, who was due to marry the dead man's daughter, turned the oven on, not realising Mr Catterall had gone inside.

The Cheshire kayak company is on trial accused of corporate manslaughter.

The jury heard how the oven doors locked automatically and there was no means of escape, and no way to raise the alarm. Mr Catterall's calls for help went unheard on the noisy factory floor.

The first anyone knew there was a problem was when smoke began seeping from the oven, it was said.

He suffered severe burns and died from shock on 23 December 2010.

The court heard on the morning of the incident the oven had a fault which had been repaired, but there was also a problem with dripped plastic.

The ovens were used to bake the plastic round the kayaks and Mr Catterall had gone inside with the crowbar to scrape it up.

However, no risk assessment had been carried out and there were no written instructions on how to operate the oven, the court was told.

The design of the oven was such that the moment it was switched on the doors automatically shut and locked to save energy. There was no clear line of sight from the control panel to the doors.

The oven in which the kayaks were molded was designed by Pyranha Mouldings, with parts provided by outside suppliers, and could reach temperatures of 280C (536F).


I always reckoned that Chinese lass who fell into the escalator machinery through a panel that hadn't been screwed in discovered a pretty horrific way to get into a dead state.

Yeah, that one's horrible.  Just take a look at what she was pulled into...

Rushed to this thread as soon as I sensed the words "mincing", "arse", and "slow grinding"

I think there have been a few instances of people getting trapped in a lift door as it rises, and finding parts of their snapped and severed body on two different floors at once.  Would be doubly-irksome if neither of them were the floor you wanted to go to.

That woman who was found dead in an airing cupboard in a holiday home a few years back. It's presumed she got up to go to the toilet in the night and opened the wrong door, which must have then locked from the inside. Other guests said they heard banging but as there was some refurb work being done at the time just thought it was that (in the middle of the night?)

Edit; Actually it was hypothermia that killed her as she burst a water pipe while trying to get out. Was in there for a week though.

Seems she might have nearly escaped: she'd pierced the wall with a piece of copper pipe, but she hadn't realized cos the spot in the wall she pierced was covered over by a picture. (Be nice to know what of).

What about if you fell into death itself? Like if you had a really stylish, chic, skilful death and people said "you know, Cuellar really took to death like a duck to water - they just fell into it"?

There's something Tim Vine about the pacing of this post, so I keep looking for a punchline that isn't there.
