2007 At-Risk Survivor
The stupidity displayed by the participants in the following tales stops short of the ultimate Darwin Awards sacrifice. Nevertheless, we salute the spirit and innovation of their misadventures. Next Prev Random

Miss a Near Miss
2007 At-Risk Survivor
Unconfirmed by Darwin

MIT student narrowly escapes death by submachine gun.

(21 September 2007, Massachusetts) The woman later claimed that strolling around an airport while wearing a fake bomb was "art" but this kind of artistic performance is apt to be short-lived. Particularly if you choose Logan International Airport in Boston. Two of the passenger jets hijacked on 9/11 took off from Logan. The student was apprehended at gunpoint, and forced to surrender her flashing circuit board and ball of Play-doh. "She's lucky to be in a cell as opposed to the morgue," said police. © 1994 - 2017
