## The blood work also confirmed the presence of ''snake venom'' and a "bite" -- that turned out to be needle marks. However, the timeline shows he ''survived'' that. Also; the venom was injected by the boyfriend of the woman who hit him with the crowbar -- and he thought ''she'' injected him.

*** At this point, the Series/{{CSI}}s have ''five'' possible causes of death ranging from drowning to poisoning, the coroner was unable to determine who actually killed him, so they throw up their hands and CallItKarma. EverybodyDidIt -- or at least ''tried'' -- and a good DA ''might'' be able to charge all involved with separate accounts of attempted murder, but any attorney worth his salt would simply describe the entire series of events to a jury, who would probably be [[RuleOfFunny laughing too hard to convict]]. Jim Brass' expression after he's gotten the third consecutive person to confess - only to find out that's not what killed him - is one of the funniest moments in the show.

* One episode of ''Series/{{CSI}}'' had the disappearance and death of a college student turn out to be a series of horrible coincidences (her trash can was swallowed by a grabby trash chute; when she went down to the dumpster to retrieve it, the dumpster was hit by a car, and she was slammed against the wall -- she then fell into the dumpster and died of internal bleeding). Her parents refuse to accept it, and claim they'll hire a private investigator to find the real killer.

** ''CSI'' has a lot of these. There was one episode with a B-plot of a driver who was shocked to death in a Jeep driving by a downed power line. The team was puzzled, as the tires should have insulated the car; however, as the driver was wearing a watch resting ''here'' and board shorts with metal brads resting ''here'', he completed the circuit.

* An episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' had several mobsters trying to kill the luckiest man on Earth; all of them perished themselves in increasingly complicated ways. They were trying to kill him because he was using his luck to collect enough money to pay for a new liver for his dying neighbor. The last mobster to die was an organ donor, and just happened to be a match for the sick neighbor.

* An "The Goldberg Variation", a seventh season episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' ''Series/TheXFiles'', had several mobsters trying to kill the luckiest man on Earth; all of them perished themselves in increasingly complicated ways. ways because his luck comes at the cost of anyone who intends him any form of harm. Mulder's [[TheSummation summation]] of how a dead hitman ended up hanging from a ceiling fan by his shoelace is a triumphant example of this trope.
-->'''Mulder''': I'm thinking it was a heart attack.\\
'''Scully''': What the '''hell''' happened here, Mulder?\\
'''Mulder''': Cause... and effect.\\
'''Scully''': Meaning...?\\
'''Mulder''': Okay, so... watch. ''[stands in front of doorframe, matching actions to words]'' So Bellini kicks down the door whaa gaa! poised to kill Weems, right? And just as he's about to pull the trigger a noise startles him... the buzzer when I buzzed to be let back in the apartment. So when he does pull the trigger, his aim is off, right? And he hits the lamp, which falls over and knocks over the ironing board, so as the bullet ricochets Weems dives over the sofa. Now, when Bellini goes for him he trips over the ironing board, bounces off the chair, flips end over end and his shoelace gets caught in the fan QED. ''[Scully laughs. The shoelace suddenly breaks and the body falls to the floor]''
** Bonus points;
They were kept trying to kill him because he was using his luck to collect enough money to pay for a new liver for his dying neighbor. The neighbor's kid, and the last mobster to die was an organ donor, and donor who just happened to be a match for the sick neighbor.tissue match.

** Another one went something along the lines of: a big abusive drunk/drug addict boxer was poisoned by someone he was having an affair with, using his shellfish allergy. As he was stumbling about with his throat closing up, he encountered a slightly slow individual he'd beaten up on several occasions, who for some reason had a crossbow shot at him, thinking he was some kind of demon. The arrow passed ''through his trachea'', giving him a makeshift tracheotomy, which allowed him to breathe again. Instead of going to the hospital, he went and found his allergy medication, and fixed that issue. He then went to sit down by the swimming pool, whereupon his lawn chair collapsed and dumped him in, and he drowned. The Series/{{CSI}}s despair of the case ever coming to anything against the original poisoner, since "the lawn chair did it." He was also hit on the head with a crowbar and injected with snake venom. In fact, the snake venom was what started the entire chain of events, while the crowbar was the last thing to happen before he went to the swimming pool (and ironically, the two were done by the same person, the crowbar in self-defense after he came looking for her because of the snake venom). The lack of a potential conviction came from the fact that, with five possible causes of death ranging from drowning to poisoning, the coroner was unable to determine who actually killed him. This would not likely have worked out quite like that in real life, because they would simply have charged all involved with separate accounts of attempted murder. However, [[RuleOfFunny it was funnier that way]], and Jim Brass' expression after he's gotten the third consecutive person to confess - only to find out that's not what killed him - is one of the funniest moments in the show.

* ''{{Alphas}}'' had a character who killed similarly. He was killing because he was paranoid - he [[IThoughtEveryoneCouldDoThat thought everyone could do that]] and that every single bad thing in his life was caused by someone setting it up to happen to him.

* This is a side effect of the Feng-Shui assassination technique used by minor antagonist Kenzo from part 6 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. He's able to read the Feng-Shui of an area to position himself in 'lucky' spots to avoid damage while pushing his opponents into 'unlucky' spots. Once in these unlucky spots, his opponents are usually hit by stray projectiles, or placed in other deadly situations, all of which happen by mere coincidence and the target's bad luck.
