Kicking a Safe
The brewing legend, Jack Daniel, died from kicking his safe in frustration after he couldn’t remember the combination. It wasn’t as simple as a sudden attack, though. See, when he kicked the heavy metal box, he injured his foot.
After being stricken with a limp and considerable pain in his foot, Daniel had to have the foot amputated. He died in 1911 from blood poisoning (gangrene) related to the injury and subsequent amputation.
