True to form, he tripped over the pearly gate

Michael Mosey, known in some circles as "Scotland's Unluckiest Man" has shuffled off this mortal coil to try his luck elsewhere. Here's a snippet of the litany of boo-boos Mr. Mosey (and his wife, who was no slouch in the accident department herself) suffered, as culled from the writeup at Blog of Death:

The former engineer fell out of bed, into a pond, off a horse and through a glass coffee table. He fractured his ankle and his back, and once broke his right leg by tripping over a puppy. He even ended up partially blinded after drinking a shot of black market vodka.

Michael was married to an equally unlucky woman. Frances Mosey once broke both of her legs when she tumbled into a 6-foot hole in the road that lacked any warning signs. She purchased a motorcycle and fell off of it on her first ride, breaking her shoulder blade. While recovering from a hernia operation, the former telephone operator suffered a fractured skull when a ceiling tile fell on her head. She allegedly died on the operating table during routine procedures in 1963 and 1996, yet was revived both times. Her most unfortunate experience, however, occurred when she accidentally cut her finger off while making dinner. Doctors were unable to reattach it because her dog ate the digit.
