"Falling Down On The Job", Way to Die #63, is the sixth death to be featured in "Sudden Death", which aired on December 22, 2010.


Mike, who's a lazy construction worker, needed to climb up the building. His technique was to use a counterweight as the "human elevator" to hoist himself up. However, the rope snaps when Mike is almost at the top and Mike falls to his death because the counterweight wasn't designed to carry a load like Mike and he died from multiple fractures and hemorrhaging.

"Mike was the boss' son who never put in an honest day of work in his life. But don't worry... because Mike will never have to lift a finger again."


  • In the German version (1000 Wege ins Gras zu Beissen), the death is set five years ahead of 1993 (this was probably a mistake done by the editors).


  • When Mike falls to his death, the resisting actions on him show that the clip is clearly sped up.
