Death...By Fold-Out Couch
Don't you hate having to sleep on a fold-out couch? I'm sure whoever came up with the invention thought it was a good idea at the time, but really it's a fucking torture chamber. Just ask this guy in St. Petersburg. Well, actually I guess you can't now considering he's colder then Heath Ledger. From Reuters:
- A Russian woman in St Petersburg killed her drunk husband with a folding couch, Russian media reported on Wednesday.
St Petersburg's Channel Five said the man's wife, upset with her husband for being drunk and refusing to get up, kicked a handle after an argument, activating a mechanism that folds the couch up against a wall.
The couch, which doubles as a bed, folds up automatically in order to save space. The man fell between the mattress and the back of the couch, Channel Five quoted emergency workers as saying.
The woman then walked out of the room and returned three hours later to check on what she thought was an unusually quiet sleeping husband.
Emergency workers said the man died instantly.
Kinda reminds of Megadeth's 99 ways to die. Good song.
