(26 September 2009, Belgium) The city of Dinant is the backdrop for this rare Double Darwin Award. Two bankrobbers attempting to make a sizeable withdrawal from an ATM died when they overestimated the quantity of dynamite needed for the explosion. The blast demolished the building the bank was housed in. Nobody else was in the building at the time of the attack.

Robber One was rushed to the hospital with severe head trauma; he died shortly after arrival. Investigators initially assumed that his accomplice had managed a getway, but the second bungler’s body was excavated from the debris twelve hours later. Would-be Robbers One and Two weren’t exactly impoverished–their getaway car was a BMW.

OTSEGO, Mich. (WOOD) – Investigators say Deb Daniels was likely trying to help her husband roll a log out of the way when the chainsaw he was using accidentally cut her neck.

“Autopsy results and the husband’s story are consistent,” says Allegan County Sheriff’s Lt. Frank Baker.

Baker says Jerry Daniels was cutting a log at the couple’s Otsego home, 765 Woodlea Drive in Otsego, Sunday afternoon when his wife came up behind him.

Lt. Baker says Jerry would not have heard his wife, who likely kneeled down to help him roll the cut log away.

When he pulled the saw from the log it came back and caught Deb in the neck, according to Baker.

“I heard a cry for help, so I came outside and at that time I saw what was going on, and I rendered as much aid as I possibly could,” said David Labonte, a neighbor and deputy for the Allegan County Sheriff’s Department. “I’m glad that based on my position that I was the one that was the first to respond.”

But nothing could help the 39-year-old woman. She bled to death at the scene.

Investigators have ruled the incident as accidental.
