Man Sticks His Head Out Top of Party Bus, DiesOne for the Darwin Awards: A Detroit man died from injuries after he stuck his head out the emergency exit - not the sunroof - of a party bus in June 2011. If there's one place you don't want to die, it's a strip club, but a close #2 is sticking your head out of a goddamn party bus driving on a highway. In Detroit.
Salvator Tatullo, 24, was making merry during his pal's bachelor party when he stood up to undoubtedly yell a long celebratory "Wooooo!" just as the bus was going under an apparently very low-hanging overpass.
The overpass didn't tate his capa, but actually caused head trauma so severe that he went into a coma as soon as the bus made a detour to the hospital. He was declared dead the next week from his "massive head injuries."
4 Die in Bachelor Party Boating AccidentWhat's more fun than a day drinking on a boat? Not much.
...I seriously can't think of anything.
So it's no surprise that a bachelor party piled into a 25-foot motorboat very, very early in the morning (i.e. they hadn't gone to bed yet) in May 1995 for a cruise around the Ohio River. But something terrible happened somehow (i.e. BUI) and the party collided with a coal barge, which ripped the bow off the fiberglass boat. Two survivors were pulled from the water, but the accident left four men dead - including the groom.
Jeep Drives Off Cliff During Bachelor PartyA bachelor party ended on a decidedly sour note in July 2002 when a Jeep full of bros went over a 30-foot cliff in Farmington, MO. The vehicle - out muddin' around the driver's dad's farm - was carrying the groom, Daniel Francis, 22. While neither he nor the driver were injured, two men were killed, including the groom's older brother. As the crash happened around 2 in the morning, and this was a bachelor party, alcohol was believed to be a factor.
Bachelor Dies After Mysterious FightIn March 2012, groom Jacob Jarozewski died after a fight during his bachelor party. Attendees say the members of the party were drinking (natch), and Jarozewski - a mixed martial arts (and motorcycle) enthusiast - engaged in fisticuffs. Details of the night are sketchy, so there's no official word on whether the fighting was friendly or vitriolic... Either way, he was found dead on the living room floor early the next morning, the day before his 26th birthday. The man who had been fighting with Jarozewski was questioned and released.
Bachelorette Paralyzed at Pool PartyHow many times do grown-ups have to tell you? No horsing around the pool. The thing about Rachelle Friedman and her closest friends is that they were all lifeguards. Seriously. So when they pushed her into the shallow end of a swimming pool during her bachelorette party in May 2010, it was just a joke. No biggie.
Very unfortunately, the bride hit her head on the bottom, injuring her spinal cord. Though she can use her arms and feel on the insides of them (but not the outsides or her fingers), she is technically a quadriplegic. Early reports of this awful news story emphasized the inconvenience that:
She can't marry her fiance because their combined income would cause her to lose her Medicaid benefits.So not only could she never ever walk again, but she also had to postpone her dumb wedding. What a week! After lots of therapy, Friedman and her fiance Chris did finally marry in July 2011.
