"Tanked Girl", Way to Die #710, is the sixth death to be featured in "Cure for the Common Death I", which aired on March 22, 2009.
Sandy (Irena Murphy) was a female scuba diver who cheated death after her oxygen tank failed and she was forced to make an emergency swim to the surface. She currently rests in a decompression chamber in order for nitrogen bubbles in her body to dissolve into her bloodstream. Sandy must wait hours before she can exit. But Sandy doesn't mind; she prefers boredom over death. Unfortunately, the Grim Reaper had other ideas for Sandy. A maintenance worker at the scuba centre accidentally opens the hatch to the chamber. In a nanosecond, the pressure is released into the chamber causing the nitrogen in Sandy's body to mix with oxygen and expand. Sandy explodes, literally.
"In a nanosecond, Sandy goes from sexy... to splattered all over the chamber."
- This is based on the death of Milton Krest in the 1989 James Bond film, Licence to Kill. It also shares some similarity with a publicized Byford-Dolphin incident that took place in 1983.
