    Default Falling Tree Crushes Jogger

    We may not always look above our campsite for dead limbs but here is where a live-looking tree fell in a freak accident and crushed a jogger:

    And she didn't even have a headphone music device distracting her.

    Scary!

    That is darkly humorous. I'm sorry, but of all the ways to buy the farm thats a good one. My favorite statistic is that 3-5 people a year on average are killed in vending machine accidents.

    ... Sorry to here about the girl though.
