"Bad Laps", Way to Die #143, is the second death to be featured in "Sor-Dead Affair", which aired on February 29, 2012.
Sergeant Stu is a former drill sergeant turned swimming instructor for a women's swimming class. One of Stu's methods of torture was to double the temperature on the pool's heater, making the water incredibly hot. After his class complains, Stu challenges them to an endurance race, where if the women win the class will be dismissed. Stu starts off at an early lead, but soon the women soon win after 20 laps. Stu is floating dead in the water due to hyperthermia caused by his wetsuit trapping the pool's heat, leading to heart failure.
"Let this be a lesson to you all fitness freaks. Take it slow... and easy... or you might wind up like Stu... dead in water."
