The Top 10 Awful Stories from Ruined Bachelor Parties

List RulesHorrible incidents, humorous and/or tragic, taking place at bachelor parties.
A bachelor party death is always the least expected worst case scenario. STDs, broken limbs, and lost cell phones and wallets are really as bad as it usually gets, but when way too much alcohol comes into play and people start sticking their heads out of party buses, things really start to hit the fan. So from multiple deaths at bachelor parties, to punctured lungs, to the most unfortunately embarrassing incidents caught on video, here are the ten most awful bachelor party stories the Internet has to offer.

    Man Sticks His Head Out Top of Party Bus, Dies

    One 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."

    What's more fun than day-drinking on a boat? Not much.

    (...I seriously can't think of anything.)

    So it was 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). 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.

    A 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 Fight

    In 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.
