The car wash owner runs the daily maintenance check, and the thief becomes disoriented by the chaos inside the car wash.

Way to Die #534
On August 2, 2008, in Miami, FL. A woman is acting out a bondage fantasy with her husband through a live webcam when a burglar breaks into the house and begins stealing things. The woman's mouth is duct-taped and she is handcuffed to her chair, so she cannot escape, stop the burglar, or scream for help. After taking her laptop, he leans over her face to thank her for making his job easy before running off with her things. Smelling the thief's extremely bad breath, she vomits, but the duct tape prevents it from exiting her mouth. Instead, it goes down her windpipe into her lungs and she dies from drowning.
Note: This marks the first time the bad guy actually gets away unscathed.

One breaks through, but the other hits the part of the wall supported by a 2x4 stud, and the veins inside his head burst. He dies from a combination of brain swelling and bleeding.
