 Being stabbed by a knife attached to your own cockfighting chicken during a match (Jose Luis Ochoa in 2011).

Forget heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming about 600,000 lives a year. We just found some absolutely bizarre ways you could die. We’re not saying you’re in any immediate danger of being killed by any of these situations, but it has happened before…
The worst part about these ways you may kick the bucket? You’ll never, ever see any of these coming. They’re that strange.
