* In the Creator/StanleyKubrick adaptation of ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'', Humbert and Lolita arrive at a hotel and find ThereIsOnlyOneBed. This [[{{lolicon}} doesn't bother Humbert much]], but to keep up appearances he asks for a cot to be sent up. This leads to a short comic sequence where Humbert and a hotel porter have to unfold the cot without waking up Lolita. The cot does little to cooperate -- squeaking loudly, throwing Humbert onto the mattress and whacking the porter in the face. Finally they get it open without waking Lolita, only for her to wake up when Humbert tries to slip under the sheets with her. So Humbert has to use the cot, [[MurphysBed which promptly collapses on him]].

* In the TV series ''Series/StElsewhere'', Mrs. Hufnagel [a recurring character as a patient] dies as a result of a folding hospital bed folding up on her. While it's overall treated seriously, there's some degree of comedy shown as well: the first person to discover her doesn't take it seriously until she doesn't respond to him, and when he tells some other doctors about the incident afterwards, two of them can't help but chuckle. [[spoiler:It's also played with in that, while it certainly didn't help, that wasn't ''actually'' what killed her.]]

SNAP! The bed folds in half like a taco shell, trapping the occupant between the raised head and foot. If you're in a [[ComedyTropes comedy]], the only injury will be to your dignity, but if you're in a drama there are no guarantees...

such guarantees. And if it's a horror flick, it can get [[FoldSpindleMutilation downright gruesome]]...

* [[http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSL0919437820080709 A man in St. Petersburg]] was lounging on an unfolded sofabed after drinking. The next morning he and his wife got into an argument and she kicked the bed in a rage, then stormed out. Unbeknownst to her, the kick released its spring-loaded folding mechanism. It folded up with her husband in it and killed him instantly (strong springs + inertia + leverage + being extremely unlucky = broken spine). A few hours later she returned to continue and found him like this.
