Not really. Just damn unlucky.

Look, Alanis, it wasn't ironic then, and it still ain't now.

Does she have a cat? I would start there.

I climbed Kilimanjaro last year and yesterday twisted my ankle falling off of a curb. How ironic?

Just as they do with some of the unsuccessful climbers of Everest, are they just going to leave the body on the stairs as a marker?

Bad parkour?

"happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this."

Got to admit, old men falling down stairs is second only... to old men getting hit in the junk on the comedy scale.

She climbed Mount Everest and died falling down stairs.
I never climbed Mount Everest and never died falling down stairs.
Conclusion: She died falling down stairs because she climbed Mount Everest.
On the other hand I have fallen down stairs so this might be the afterlife.

People don't just die falling down stairs.  Either _______ happened and then she fell down some stairs, or alternatively, she fell down some stairs but secretly had underlying _______ disease which made the fall lethal.

For instance, if I want to know if heart attacks run in the family, I ask if any family members "suddenly died such as drowning or car accidents or something like that."

Ya know, sometimes shiat happens without extenuating circumstances.

It would be ironic if the mountain climbed on top of her.

/Also kind of kinky.

I fell down the stairs once. It was hilariously fun.

Probably because I didn't die.

Actually, they do.  Thirty percent of lethal traumatic brain injuries occur from falls. I'm not going to google it for you, since you can obviously type in those words..

If you cheat death enough times, don't be surprised if death cheats you. Go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, die from slipping on an orange peel.

Are you threatening me??? With AN ORANGE PEEL??

My family has never died from an orange peel slippage dude, I don't think ANYONE has died of orange peel slippage.

Bananas are the real killers, cuz they're wily, and can think ahead, like a carrot.

Everybody suspects the banana peel. But when you think, "oh, it's just an orange peel," WHAMMO!

FTA:  "Fox was the first woman to climb three mountains "at altitudes of 8,000 meters or higher" after she reached Mount Everest's summit."

The statement would be correct if they had indicated that she was the first American woman to summit three 8K peaks, with Everest as her third.  Yasuko Namba, who died in the '96 disaster, had climbed six of the "Seven Summits", and would have been the second Japanese woman to complete the Seven Summits had she survived.

Sloppy reporting.
