"Water Logged", Way to Die #447, is the first death to be featured in "I See Dead People (And They're Cracking Me Up)", which aired on April 5, 2009.
Last year in the USA, over 3,000 people died by drowning. But only one managed to do it like this.
It started the way a lot of accidental deaths do; a combination of alcohol, college kids and a prospect of wild, naked sex. The Reservoir was a legendary college hangout, famous for this cliff and only the bravest took the leap. The combination of beer and booty had Patrick staring down at the water 60 feet below and jumped from the cliff.
In what would later be reported as a freak accident, Patrick hit the surface at 30 MPH (48 km/h) at a perfect angle for a powerful jet of water to shoot up his rectum and blew out his large intestine. Massive internal bleeding caused him to pass out and drown.
