Gotta go with the classics:
Draco, an Athenian lawyer from Ancient Greece. (He’s the one we get the word “draconian” from.) At a theatre on Aegina, his supporters showered him with so many gifts of hats and cloaks that he was crushed by the weight and suffocated to death.
Aeschylus, the famous Greek tragedian. Legend has that he died when an eagle dropped a tortoise on his bald head, having mistaken it for a rock.
For more modern times, I’ll go with Jeff Porcaro, the prolific session drummer who worked with countless rock bands, most notably Toto. He suddenly fell ill while spraying insecticide in his garden, was rushed to the hospital and died hours later. The official cause of death was “atherosclerosis induced by cocaine use”, but that’s been challenged by many of his friends and colleagues who claim he was never a heavy cocaine user – instead, most believe it was merely a bizarre gardening accident.
