13 Most Bizarre Celebrity Deaths
There is an inherent suck when losing a celebrity. It just always sucks. Whether you were a fan, or a casual observer of their existence, it’s yet another reminder of our own mortality. Then, there are those celebrity deaths that are so bizarre, that it’s another reason to lock the doors, and live inside the rest of your life… until you read about deaths that are even more bizarre, you want to sit in an open field and travel everywhere in a force field. Here are 13 of the most bizarre, and sadly tragic deaths of beloved celebrities.
13. Eric Hill
In 2014, there was a gentleman suitor on The Bachelorette by the name of Eric Hill. Eric was an adventurist, and an explorer and probably one of the cooler dudes on the show. The thing: men like that are a bit much for a lot of women. After he was dismissed from the show by bachelorette Andi Dorfman, he went back to living the life he loved, full of adventure. On a particular outing, Eric was paragliding with some friends in Utah, when his canopy collapsed near a cliff face, putting him into an uncontrollable fall. He survived the accident, but died of his injuries the following day. Fans of the show were outraged after producers decided to show footage of the cast learning of this death. They called it exploitation — the producers called it documentation. Truths from two perspectives.
12. Brandon Lee
The son of legendary martial arts legend, and founder of Jeet Kune Do, Bruce Lee, Brandon Lee was making a mark of his own in Hollywood, and was starring in his biggest film to date, when he was tragically killed on set. While filming The Crow, Brandon was accidentally shot by .44 magnum slug that was left in the weapon — known as a squib load. Power blanks were inserted into the revolver chamber for an action sequence. Somehow, the crew missed the bullet lodged in the chamber, or likely in the gun barrel, and Brandon was shot at close range (10 to 15 feet), after entering the doorway of a scene. The bullet struck his abdomen, and he was immediately transported to local, North Carolina hospital, where doctors performed multiple surgeries, but were unable to save him.
