That's why I stay away from things like that and ax throwing.  Far too easy for a dumbass amateur to accidentally kill others, for minimal entertainment value.

Honestly, that's not a bad way to go. Just walking down the street when, suddenly, you become one with eternity.

That would be an awesome way to die.  Unique, fresh, pretty instant, completely unexpected.

So the hedge was supposed to magically stop the equipment from going over and hitting innocent not even bystanders?

I can see a payday in the widows future.

You might think so but the article fails to mention the hammer hit him in the balls.

Actually, I'm surprised this has happened more often. RIP

That isn't it but around 2012 there was an article on a German dude in his seventies at some meet getting hit in the throat by a javelin and dying a day later, I remember when it made Fark.

I'd much rather die instantaneously in a comical way that people could at least have a good laugh about instead of "Yikes, sucks to be you" way.

That wasn't the goal?

Methinks that the people running the hammer throw event need to increase the size of the field that they use for this event. Or at least not have it aimed into a garden with senior citizens wandering around looking at the flowers.

this *hasn't* happened more often.

My aunt has a piece of a javelin in her shoulder from high school.

Safety tip: Don't try to save time by having the javelin throw and the 500m events simultaneously.
