"Backseat Die-er", Way to Die #105, is the sixth death featured in "Wild Wild Death", which aired on November 21, 2011.


Omar is a very incompetent paramedic who had been fired in three other cities around Missouri, but somehow got rehired in a fourth. He is joined by his new female coworker Lauren. When Lauren tells Omar to go into the back, the viewers learn the reason why Omar keeps getting fired: he's always getting high on the company's supply. When he gets high on nitrogenous oxide, he dreams that he's having sex with Lauren (for he has a crush on her) and started to play with the defibrillator. The defibrillator electrocutes him to death, much to the shock of Lauren.

"Omar was an unconfident doofus. Thank God before he could do harm to a patient, he pulled his own plug."
