Strange Accidental Death #1

A lawyer, demonstrating the safety of windows in a skyscraper, crashed through a window pane and plunged to his death

Garry Hoy (1955 – 9 July 1993) was a lawyer for the law firm of Holden Day Wilson in Toronto. He is best known for the circumstances of his death; in an attempt to prove to a group of his partners at the firm that the glass in the Toronto-Dominion Centre was unbreakable, he threw himself through a glass wall on the 24th story and fell to his death after the window frame gave way. He had apparently performed this stunt many times in the past, having previously bounced harmlessly off the glass. The event occurred in a small boardroom adjacent to a boardroom where a reception was being held for new articling students.

In an interview, the firm’s spokesman mentioned that the glass in fact did NOT break, but popped out of its frame, leading to Hoy’s fatal plunge.

Hoy’s death contributed to the closing of Holden Day Wilson in 1996, at the time the largest law firm closure in Canada.


لقد قرأت عن العديد من الصدف العجيبة و حالات الموت الغريبة و قررت أن أشارككم بها

هذه الحادثة تتكلم عن محام اشتهر بالطريقة التي مات بها

فبينما كان يشرح لبعض من شركائه عن أمان ناطحات السحاب، أراد أن يبرهن لهم أن الزجاج غير قابل للكسر فرمى بجسده على الحائط الزجاجي كبرهان فانفلت إطار النافذة و سقط من الطابق ال 24 و مات على مرأى من زملائه و مجموعة من الطلاب

علما بأنه قد اعتاد فعل ذلك و لم يحدث له شيء بأي من المرات السابقة

و أكدت الشركة بأن الزجاج بالفعل لم ينكسر و لكن ما حدث هو أن الإطار انفلت

(أهم شي)

و قد ساهم موته باغلاق الشركة التي كان يعمل بها و التي كانت من أشهر شركات المحاماة في كندا بذلك الوقت 19993
