Our lives are unique journeys, but so are our deaths. Every human life is like a snowflake, never to be repeated or copied in any way. No one can say they ever see their deaths coming, but it would have been impossible for these 22 people to even guess how it would happen for them. Some of these left me speechless. 1.) A Russian woman, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, died of a heart attack while at her own funeral, because doctors wrongly declared her deceased. 2.) A new bride, Maria Pantazopoulos, from Montreal drowned to death at her wedding photo shoot, when she fell into a river. 3.)

You may have learned about mummies in your 8th grade world history class, but there's so much more to the stories than you probably think.

When you go for a hike, it's always a good idea to let at least one person know where you're going and how long you plan to be there. Usually, nothing happens and you come back safe, but there's always that chance of disaster. Or, in the case of Redditor indigoaway, a chance of a brutal sacrifice by a possible cult.

Although this is pretty much common sense, it certainly wasn't the life lesson this mother hoped to teach her young daughter while the two spent the afternoon together in the park. Having caught a butterfly in her net, the little girl was excited to set her captive free into the wild. "Go to your nature place. Go to where you belong," she exclaimed mere seconds before the horrific scene began to unfold. No little girl should have to endure...
