Why didn't he make one of these while he was in the cooler?:

maxximillian: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Jesus, in this day and age people still don't use mechanical emergency door openers? Even the trunk on my 2010 Chrysler had an emergency release lever coontil I removed it.) It sucks this guy died but a simple release latch was all he needed to prevent this.

Just curious. Why did you remove it?

Kids kept escaping.

Babwa Wawa: doglover: Do they make coolers without door handles and kill switches inside still?

Maybe it's a kill switch or interior door handle? I dunno.

But in this case, a kill switch wouldn't work because it was being temporarily cooled by dry ice.

A kill switch is obviously not needed, the guy is dead.

Amateur! Didn't he know that he could just use the phone line in the wall to send touch tone tunes to his girlfriend who would then find him with the help of a stereotypical new york cabbie?

The poor bastard slipped up on dry ice, while cutting corners too fast.

kenny's mom: Dear medical-minded Fark expertise:

If it was the CO2 that caught up with him: Would it have been a more, or less, traumatic death than Carbon Monoxide would be? (I'm not suggesting Dry Ice Suicides, but am genuinely curious).

The poison goes to work on the central nervous system, causing severe muscle spasms followed by the inevitable drooling. At this point, the entire digestive system collapses accompanied by uncontrollable flatulence. Until finally, the poor bastard is reduced to a quivering wasted piece of jelly

Dry ice emits carbon dioxide

In much the same way rain emits water.

Conversation secretly acquired moments before:

"Hey think we should fix that door handle inside?"
"Naw...we should be fine...just don't get locked in there, ha ha ha ha!"
"Yeah! Ha...I'm just gonna go take inventory, okay? You lock up."

optikeye: doglover: Do they make coolers without door handles and kill switches inside still?

I worked at a zoo and we had a 50' long freezer for seafood and meat. It had a giant handle on the door. You couldn't get trapped inside unless someone locked you in there.

Reading the Article. The interior door opening mech was broken---and had been for some time.
They had also filled the freezer with Dry Ice because of a power outage.


And the dude went in there!? Alone!?


I guess he was


too cool for school.
