* Creator/AlecGuinness experienced this shooting several of his Ealing comedies. During Admiral D'Ascoyne's death scene in ''Film/KindHeartsAndCoronets'', he was left tied to a chair in a flooding room and was unable to escape, nearly drowning until a crew member realized what was happening and cut him loose. On ''Film/TheLadykillers'', Guinness was nearly decapitated by the railroad sign during the movie's finale, only surviving because he accidentally missed his mark for the shot.

* Twenty-odd years before the events in ''Manga/GlassMask'' began, the famous actress Chigusa Tsukikage was performing her prized ''Crimson Goddess'' play but a stage-spotlight snapped and fell on her. She ''barely'' survived, [[TwoFaced but her burns badly deformed half of her face]] to the point that [[CareerEndingInjury she stopped stage-acting since]] and switched to teaching. It also kickstarted her obsession to find the perfect actress to give her the ''Crimson Goddess'' role, which was specifically written for her by her [[StarCrossedLovers long-gone beloved]] Ichiren Osaki.

** The ''Unfriendly Girls Band'' case also uses this, when the drummer and leaderess of an all-female rock band is somehow strangled to death ''on stage'' without anyone noticing at first. [[spoiler: It turns out the killer, the keyboardist of the band, managed to use very resistant wool and a ''freaking selfie stick'' placed in a vital position to create a makeshift gallow and strangle her bandmate without even touching her. She did it because she believed the other woman to have driven the original singer of the band to suicide (in reality she tried to help the singer in a ''terribly'' misguided way, she died in an HeroicSacrifice, and the victim blamed herself for it).]]
