"Miner Injuries", Way to Die #240, is the sixth death to be featured in "Death: One Size Fits All", which aired on August 29, 2011.

Plot

Travis was a mining foreman who demonstrated the backbreaking inhumanity of working during the early 20th century. While his 49ers work gruelingly, Travis tells them to work harder, as he brags about his handsome mustache. But, one of his workers gets sick and starts coughing blood, so Travis decides to do the work all by himself. Another one of the workers smells methane and warns his coworkers and Travis. But Travis ends up ignores him and swings his pickax right into a pocket of methane. The spark given off by his pickax hitting the rocks ignites the pocket and sends smoldering rocks and a methane-explosion of blistering magnitude into his body. When the smoke clears, it becomes obvious. Travis's life is finally over.

"Travis died from massive hemorrhaging, but no need for his funeral. He is already... 6,000 feet, under."
