** Fun fact, the footage of the actual suicide is on Youtube, and is graphic even for the quality of the video.

* In ''VideoGame/HotlineMiami2WrongNumber'', this shows up in Martin Brown's missions. [[spoiler:Specifically, in the last one, the woman playing his victim guns him down with what was supposed to be a fake gun... but the deranged director replaced it with [[NotSoFakePropWeapon a real one]]]].

* Brazilian soap opera star Domingos Montagner [[http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-37381477 drowned]] after deciding to take a swim in a river near where the soap ''Series/VelhoChico'' was being shot after a day of filming, but quickly found himself overcome by the currents. One of his co-stars tried calling for help as he was swept downstream but the locals apparently thought that they were shooting a scene from the soap and did nothing to help.

* In July 2017, up and coming French singer Barbara Weldens died onstage, apparently after being electrocuted by some equipment, while performing in the French village of Gourdon. Making it more tragic was the fact that she had released her first album, to massive critical acclaim in her home country, in February of that year.

** Similarly, in the ''Film/VanHelsing'' film, the costumes for the dwergers seemed to have issues with ''constantly'' catching on fire, as the DVDCommentary revealed (to the point it became an on-set RunningGag). At one point you can actually ''see'' a puff of a fire extinguisher putting out one of them just off-screen.

** Speaking of Cruise, he was almost decapitated while filming ''Film/TheLastSamurai''. He and his co-star Hiroyuki Sanada were acting out a sword fight scene when Sanada swung a sword at Cruise who was on an off-camera mechanical horse at the time. But the machine reportedly malfunctioned and failed to duck at the right moment. Sanada stopped the blade just one inch from his neck.

* During the 2017 Indianapolis 500, Scott Dixon hit the stricken car of Jay Howard, who had bounced off the wall, which caused him to fly through the air, and land on the SAFER barrier on the inside wall, where his car did a barrel roll, tearing apart its back end. After watching the replay, the announcers, even said the car saved his life (in fact he was even able to walk away, though due to a minor ankle injury, he was on crutches for a few days afterwards). Also, if he had landed differently, say front end on the wall, instead of rear-end, he could easily have been killed.
