Ilda Vitor Maciel of Rio de Janeiro is the next victim of death to make it to our list of ten weirdest deaths ever. She died at the age of 88 in September, 2012. It so happened that a nursing technician, by mistake, injected soup in her right arm, instead of injecting it in her feeding tube.

4. Run Run, It’s My Funeral !!!
Next on our list of ten weirdest deaths ever is the horrifying story of a Russian woman named Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov. She was declared deceased by the doctors in June, 2012. However, she wasn’t actually deceased. Since, her blood pressure had dropped down to an abnormal level, it was hard to tell that she was breathing. Her funeral was ready and she was placed in the coffin. When she opened her eyes and realized that she was being buried, she started screaming out of fright. She was taken to the hospital, immediately. There she was pronounced dead due to a heart attack. Must have been very saddening for her family to have her back and then see her go again.
3. Beard is the Killer
Hans Steininger, an Austrian man, who lived during the 16th century, was famous for his long beard. His beard was 4.5ft (almost 1.4m) long. It was so long that he would wrap it into a leather pouch, when he wasn’t exhibiting it. In 1567, his house caught fire. He ran in order o save his life, however, in the haste of escaping the fire, he did not get time to fold up the beard into the pouch. So, he tripped over his own beard, and died. It is believed that the death happened due to breaking of his neck when he fell down. The same beard that gave him fame and name also became a reason for his death, and a reason for him to be on our list of ten weirdest deaths ever.

Have you ever wanted to be a superman or a superwoman? I am sure the answer is YES for most of you. We all have, at one point or the other, felt the desire to fly, but there was one man who went a little too far. Franz Reichelt, an Austrian-French tailor, believed that he had found the secret of ‘Flying’. He invented a garment, which he thought could make him fly. It was a combination of overcoat and parachute. To demonstrate his invention, he jumped over the top of Eiffel Tower. The invention flopped…and of course, he died falling off from the tower. The incident took place in 1911.
So, these were the 10 weirdest deaths ever…they were weird, yet tragic. We pray that the souls of the people discussed in this write-up may rest in peace, forever!!!
