"Pop Goes The Cholo", Way to Die #895, is the third death to be featured in "Better Them Than Us", which aired on March 16, 2011.
Two street gang members take a third member to a back alley doctor to treat a bullet wound to the chest. The gang leader ends up pistol whipping the doctor into unconsciousness after losing patience with him. With the doctor out cold, the gang members decide to do the operation themselves, but fail after inserting the tracheal tube down the injured member's esophagus, rather than the trachea, and end up hemorrhaging the injured member's stomach by filling it with air and causing it to explode.
