25 Most Horrible Ways To Die We All Want To Avoid

It’s a sad irony we enter the world one way but have plenty of doors to make our final exit. Death isn’t ever pleasant but some ways are certainly much worse than others.

If most people had to choose, we’d guess it would be to die in their old age surrounded by family. Unfortunately, we rarely get to choose and some deaths come thrusting upon us without notice and escape. But, of all the ways to die, which are the most horrific? Here are 25 most horrible ways to die we all want to avoid.

Buried Alive

Whether you’re buried in a coffin, in the ground completely, or in an avalanche, you’re likely to die from asphyxiation. Of those, being buried in a coffin is the longest and most drawn out which makes it that much more horrific.


Torture Murder

Look up the notorious serial killer H.H. Holmes and you’ll fully know the horrors of dying by torture. The methods are numerous, the process unbearably slow and painful, but the end result is always the same.


Freeze to Death

If you’re stranded in a place with extremely cold temperatures, the likelihood of you freezing to death is high. Your body will shiver to try to keep warm but eventually you’ll lose color, become confused, and might even strip off all your clothes. Burrowing into a snow bank without your clothes on is the last thing you’ll likely do before you pass out and die.

Being crushed to death could happen in many different kinds of situations. Whether crushed by a boulder, a car, an elephant, or any other heavy and large object, you’ll likely die quickly if it crushes your head first. If not, It really depends on where your body is being crushed. The results could be slow and quite painful.


Eaten by Animals

For the most part, humans don’t have to worry too much about being an animal’s prey but it does occur from time to time. Crocodiles, lions, bears, wolves, and tigers are on the top of the list of animals that hunt, kill, and eat humans. We’re thinking it’s pretty painful and horrifying to feel teeth sinking into your flesh and bones before dying.
