After the insanely cute Dumb Ways to Die song I posted about yesterday I thought this article from 1912 was a pretty good example of a dumb way to die.
Edward Dyon was the secretary of the Wildwood Campers and that makes me think that he had probably done a bit of wandering around in the outdoors in his lifetime. It makes me wonder then, why he didn’t pay a little more attention to where he was going when he started chasing a rabbit.
Clearly the rabbit had a pretty good escape plan, it headed for a cliff. Poor Edward Dyon didn’t end the chase in time and went over the edge, into a creek 40ft below, and was killed. Doh! 😉
