Know that feel when your own child kills you? Shit, that’s probably not the best line to open with, but it’s too late – the deed is done. And, of course you don’t know that feel – how could you? Unless you’re actually a dead person reading this. *shudders*
Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is, human history is filled with people whose deaths were caused by the things they created. Lo and behold, we’ve even compiled a list for you.
1. Marie Curie – Died of aplastic anemia as a result of prolonged exposure to ionizing radiation
Marie Curie, who’s known as the co-discovering radium and polonium, also invented the process to isolate radium. She died of prolonged exposure to radiation emitted from her research materials.
2. Karel Soucek – Died from a stunt he had invented
After his successful stunt of being dropped from Niagara Falls in a barrel he designed himself, Karel Soucek decided to do it again from the Houston Astrodome and drop into a tank of water. However, his stunt did not go as planned and the barrel hit the rim of the tank. Soucek died in the hospital a couple hours later.
