Has anyone ever been killed playing football?
Yes According to The National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury, 325 men and boys have died either directly or indirectly from playing football at the high school and college level between 1982-2008 (26 years). Direct injuries are defined as those fatalities which resulted directly from participation in the fundamental skills of football (such as tackling and blocking). Indirect injuries are those injuries that are caused by systemic failure as a result of exertion while participating in football activity or by a complication which was secondary to a nonfatal injury (such as heart failure and heat stroke). Professional Football 24 Oct 1971: Churck Hugues, wide receiver with the Detroit Lions, died of a heart attack during a game with the Chicago Bears in Tiger Stadium. His teammates were informed of his death before leaving the stadium. 22 Jul 1979: James Victor Cain, tight end with the St. Louis Cardinals, died of congenital heart failure during training camp. 01 Aug 2001: Korey Stringer, offensive lineman with the Minnesota Vikings, died of heatstroke during the second day of practice with full pads. His core temperature reached 108 degrees. He died within 24 hours of being removed from the field.

apart from vehicular accidents ( plane, bus crashes) I am not aware of any. There have been soccer riots that have started fires, etc. These have had fatal results. there was one in supposedly civilized England a few years ago.
Sadly, Yes. The game has had some very serious events that have resulted in loss of life. Its rare, buts its happened. There has been a recent death following a rugby injury where a student in the UK broke his neck and developed complications later. However, the IRB and NRL are trying hard keep the …ethos of the game but put in safe guards all the time. Its difficult when the beloved game is all about big hit contacts. (MORE)

Yes.. Some types of Salamanders have deadly toxins in their skin. Taricha torosa and Taricha granulosa have been responsible for the death of humans.
Yes. a shortstop named Raymond Chapman was on the wrong end of Pitcher Carl Mays ( no relation to Willy) Submarine ball and died after some attempted surgery. there have been other fatal casualties on the diamond- just recently a l6 year old kid succumbed to being hit directly in the chest area- and… he, being a catcher, had on his body armor, so to speak. Baseball is a dangerous game and is probably the only normal civilian job where one has to deal with high-velocity projectiles- incoming and at all angles of attack. The fact the pitcher and batter are adversaries does not mitigate matters, and such tactics as the ( close shave) are seen as legit- as in (Dusting the Batter) could get dangerous. It is amazing that the hazards of baseball are so ill-understood and studied. (MORE)

No. Only unmanned spacecraft have been to Venus. The farthest man has travelled is to the Moon. The closest that Venus ever gets to the earth is about 115 times farther than that. In the early 20th century, it was thought that Venus was like Earth but with more water. There are many early science f…iction stories that describe the oceans and jungles of Venus. In reality, Venus is almost completely unlike Earth except in size. Several unmanned spacecraft have landed on Venus. All of them were destroyed within hours by the heat and the atmosphere. Several more unmanned craft have done surveys from orbit. The biggest problems with landing a human on Venus are cooling and pressure. It would be the equivalent of building a suit that would withstand the pressure almost a kilometer below the surface of Earth's oceans, while simultaneously being bathed in molten lead. Satellites that have visited the planet included: - NASA Mariner 2 flyby in 1962. - the Soviet (Russian) Venera landers between 1970 and 1985 - NASA Magellan (mapped the planet with radar) from 1989 to 1994 - ESA satellite Venus Express , orbiting the planet since 2006 (MORE)

He passed away the following day. (MORE)
No. Nobody has ever been to Mars. Humans have only been to Earth and the Moon. Technically but in 2012 NASA is hoping to put up a site to research on mars.
The human race has only gotten as far as the moon. We haven't visited any other planets; including Pluto. This is due to the sheer distance between Earth and other planets. Space travel requires large expenditures to plan and build spacecraft and any missions would take months or years using current… technologies.. In fact, the first probe to Pluto was recently launched and will be there in 2015. (New Horizons) (MORE)
Nobody has ever been to Uranus. The farthest people have been is to the Moon.
Yes, about 2 years ago. . A boy was playing soccer. In his 20s?? . anyways, he was playing soccer. then he just collapsed and had a heart attack. .
no only the moon no one have been on Jupiter because it a big ball of gas held together by gravity Zero. No human has ever been to any other surface off Earth, besides the moon. Jupiter is a gas giant. It's the largest planet in our solar system. It is made up mostly of hydrogen and helium. It's a…tmosphere is toxic to humans. We think it may have a rocky core, but have no way of knowing at this time. The atmospheric pressure is tremendous and would crush any ship trying to find it's surface... if there is one. (MORE)
Certainly, minor rumbles occured without any damage in Washington Dc recently. often there are seismic shakes in areas sparsely populated that are only traced on instruments and no damage, let alone deaths, occur.

No, only unmanned probes have been. It is a gas planet and if you got to the solid part of it the pressure would crush you and its gases are not in the human range of breathing. Its rings are made out of rock and dust and ice. You would have to get past them and it has many moons as well.

As far as i know, ghosts can only scared a human being, but cannot directly kill them.

It's also depend on the type of ghost, if a ghost came back for revenge, then it might be able to haunt its victim , drive them into insanity and finally lead to suicide. (MORE)

Indirectly it could happen, as these devices are used as ignitors in Diesel Engines rather than the more common spark plugs. Both were invented by Robert Bosch. the Glow Plug could be, while being tested, come into contact with flammable substances and ignite them. actual cause of death would be fir…es, burns, smoke, etc- it would be a job for the fire department. I am not aware of any fatal accident being so-caused, they are by no means harmless and caution is advised. It should be noted they are not normally intended for use as Bomb detonators! (MORE)
Dally and Johnny. Dally, I'm pretty sure killed people when he lived in New York, and Johnny killed that Soc Bob.
