Way to Die #485
On May 4, 2005, in Peoria, IL. A night nurse, who is an ex-Army medic, is mugged by a gun-toting drug addict during her shift. She tries to knock him unconscious by giving him prescription drugs, but they are ineffective. The addict soon tries to rape the nurse, and she lures him to an MRI room by stripping. She then turns it on to disarm the addict, but he has a steel plate in his skull which the magnetic force of the MRI machine attracts. The man flies into the machine, hitting his head on its top, and dies of brain damage from the massive blow.

One falls on an Agave plant and gets impaled through the heart, while the other runs head-on into another Saguaro and its needles impale him through the eyes and into his brain.
