Angry Wheelchair Man
2010 Darwin Award Winner
Confirmed True by Darwin

DARWIN AWARD WINNER OF THE CENTURY! Angry Wheelchair Man, the rashly rushing rammer who epitomizes the downfall of the human race.

(25 August 2010, Daejon, South Korea) An angry handicapped man, annoyed that an elevator departed without him, thinks it over before ramming his wheelchair into the doors (bam!) once, twice, three times in all. Success and failure combined as he gained access to the elevator, and plunged down the rabbit hole to his death. This 40-year-old man earns immortality as an irritated Darwin Award winner.

Stress kills. Gravity kills, too. The tragic downfall of this rash rammer provides a vivid example of natural selection in action. However, natural selection just got a check: authorities traced the "problem" not to Angry Wheelchair Man, but to elevator doors that cannot withstand a large impact. Safety regulations were strengthened after the elevator was installed, to prevent accidents "such as might happen to children and drunks."

DARWIN AWARD WINNER OF THE CENTURY! Truly the downfall of humanity.

"Just watch the 45-second video. This is real security video, not staged, you have to see this. Pop some popcorn, crack a cold one, and enjoy."

"I couldn't belive this. What was he thinking??? Love, Daddo"
"Don't worry about the lift I'll make my own way down!"
"Persistance paid off for Won Dom Fuk!"

"Liebe, kennst du eigentlich die darwin awards?"
"Bitte lesen und ansehen."

Here is one I consider the all-time winner. Note - the doors have clear glass inserts. We may need to double the guard at our elevators Saturday night."

"The hidden disabilities hurt most."
"It would seem obvious that behind a lift door lurks a lift shaft."
What a ride down!
FAIL!!!

"You hate to laugh, but the dumbass could see the elevator wasn't there."

"Obviously, with no patience whatsoever, he actually got what he deserved. Poetic justice."

The tragic downfall of this rashly rushing rammer provides a heartening example of how brilliant you are--compared to some! However, natural selection just got a little harder. The authorities traced the "problem" to elevator doors that cannot withstand a large impact. Safety regulations were strengthened three years after the elevator was installed, to prevent accidents "such as might happen to children and drunks."
