1. Woman gets smashed by huge Taco Bell sign被美国快餐店巨型广告牌砸中

Diana Durre, of Chambers, Nebraska, died after a 75-foot (23 m) Taco Bell sign fell on top of the truck cab she was in. The pole broke at a welded joint about 15 feet (4.5 m) above the ground owing to strong winds. The sign fell right on top of the quad-cab pickup。内布拉斯加州的议员戴安娜-杜蕾好端端地坐在车里,一块75英尺(23米)的塔可钟(美国快餐店)广告牌掉了下来击中车辆,戴安娜就此一命呜呼。因为风力强大,广告杆15英尺(4.5米)高的接缝处断裂了。广告牌正好砸到戴安娜的车上。

Diana was meeting a Wyoming couple to sell them some dogs. They had agreed to meet in North Platte, Nebraska, at about 1 p.m., “right underneath the big Taco Bell sign。” The Wyoming couple showed up after the accident。戴安娜当时正要去见一对来自怀俄明州打算向她买狗的夫妇。他们约好下午1点左右在内布拉斯加州的北普拉特见面。“车刚好就在广告牌正下方。” 事故发生后,那对怀俄明州的夫妇也赶到了现场。

The jumper died instantly, and the man, from the Ukraine, died in hospital shortly afterwards from his injuries. His wife, who was walking with him at the time, escaped with minor injuries in the incident。一名从八楼窗户跳楼自杀的女人竟然压死一个路人。在巴塞罗那附近的维拉港,这女人从阳台跳了下去,正好落到一名50岁的行人身上。跳楼的女人当场死亡,而那位来自乌克兰的行人负伤被送进医院不久也一命呜呼了。事故发生时乌克兰人的老婆当时也在身边,所幸只受了些许轻伤。

He had apparently attempted this stunt many times in the past, having previously bounced harmlessly off the glass. His first attempt failed to damage the glass at all. On his second attempt the glass still didn't break but instead actually popped out of the window frame, and he fell over 300 feet to his death。很明显他以前耍过很多次这个小伎俩,而且每次都能被玻璃弹回来。这回,他第一次依旧没能撞破窗玻璃,第二次,玻璃虽然没破却从窗框上脱落下来,加里硬生生地从300英尺高的楼上掉下去摔死了。
