There's one thing sure about death, we all know nothing about it, and we're all heading towards it. While most people wish to die peacefully on their bed in sleep, not everyone's dreams come true. Most of the people die and must be dying as you're reading this because of heart attack, car accident and what not.
Apparently, have you ever wondered what's it like to die, and how many ways are there in which you could die? While you're still stuck at peaceful points, I'd suggest you think about that last horror movie or show you've watched; it showed the most painful way out, right? Well, I'd say maybe. Because I came across some unbelievable stories on the internet and it talks about the most painful ways in which people have died.
We at WittyFeed have compiled the list of deaths which forced death to go on its knees and beg for mercy.
Have a look!
I would look at the case of Kiki Camarena. Camerena was an undercover DEA agent that was captured and tortured by a cartel in the 80s. He was injected with amphetamines and other drugs to ensure that he remained conscious while being tortured over a 30-hour period, culminating with a hole drilled into his head with a power drill," says a Redditor.
I would consider the death of soldiers who fell into the bogs which were created by shell holes in no man's land during the World War I. The mud was deadly and it would take 12-14 hours for them to sink and drown in it. Impossible to be saved and sucked out of that mud, it was the slowest form of death. Also, the mud comprised of toxic and deadly items in it.
If you're faint of heart, then proceed with caution.
There's an incident in which a guy was trying to clean the BIG oven. He crawled in there, as the oven was turned off and cooled for cleaning. He reached to the conveyor where slices of bread are kept and sent for baking. Midway, he realised that oven is getting hotter. He tried to come back-off, but it was too late. First, his clothes, and then his skin stuck to the belt; he could feel every layer of his body melting.
The 8-year-old boy wished to climb on the chimney on top of his old house. As he was climbing, the little boy got stuck in between with his back facing the ground. It was an ancient home, and nobody lived there. The family did everything they could to find him, but they were unaware of their child's wish. Slowly, the poor lad died, and his skeleton was discovered after eight years.
Today I learned about a ninja who was killed by being buried up to his head and had dull bamboo shoots positioned around his neck and was slowly decapitated over the course of several days, says a Redditor.
After his trial on August 23, 1305, William Wallace was dragged from the hall, stripped naked and then dragged through the street to the Elms at Smithfield. He was hanged at first, then drawn and quartered and then beheaded in the most terrible ways possible.
"Locked in Syndrome, or rather call it the complete version where thoughts are locked inside you with no way for them to come out is one of the insane death one could get," shares HoochieKoo.
There was a German soldier who could also play the piano. The Russians had captured him asked him to play the piano. If he stopped even for a second, they'd shoot him. He played the instrument for more than 24 hours continuously before collapsing. The Russians laughed at him, and he was killed.
There was a device called The Judas Cradle. Though a lot of people claim that nothing like this existed ever, some people still believe that it did. It a sharp triangle shaped killing instrument, with a harness above it. The victims were put over it, as the triangle would slowly go inside the victim and puncture them from inside, followed by blood coming out from every part of their body.
Being stored forever, some people used to choose death over their life. But, these kinds of death are not easy ones. The process required at first the person to lose its skin, for which they'd be boiled in hot water or leave you under the sun to get sunburnt. Then they'd remove the first layer of your skin, as you feel every slash of it on you. They'll leave you for dying, and once you die, they put up some chemicals on you.
Keelhauling, it's one of the most brutal forms of death. In this, a person is attached to a pulley system on a pirate ship. They'll drown him underwater and attach to the other ship, going in opposite direction. The person would be stretched to limits as their body starts to get torn apart.
During Christmas 2002, there was news of bartender Doyle and his friend, Michael Wright who was with his girlfriend. Three of them walked down the road at night, while Doyle was continuously hitting on Michael's girlfriend.
Eyewitnesses say, they heard someone screaming, "please don't break my leg, please."
Michael then threw him inside the manhole. 18 feet deep, but Doyle didn't die; he was seeking help continuously.
Four hours later he was rescued with the body temperature of 125 degrees. When the doctor saw him, they said: "Looks like he has been steamed like a lobster." There were no signs of death, he just fell into the hands of infinity sleep, forever.
There are glacier wells, and if you get stuck in there for any reason, you start to lose your breath as the water around you starts to rise. It freezes you slowly to death from downside as you struggle to breathe.
According to a famous story, there was a man who faced a lot of radiation when nuclear weapons were dropped in Japan, but nothing happened to that guy. It is said, Hisashi Ouchi was his name. Within next 83 days, his body melted, DNA destroyed. He prayed for death, but people and doctors did everything they could to keep him alive. Unfortunately, he died.
That's all, folks!
