People who died on January 24, 1993 (the exact day you were born)

Thurgood Marshall, U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Unusual Deaths in 1993

Brandon lee, son of bruce lee, was shot and killed by a prop .44 magnum gun while filming the movie the crow. a cartridge with only a primer and a bullet was fired in the pistol prior to the scene brandon was in; this caused a squib load, in which the primer provided enough force to push the bullet out of the cartridge and into the barrel of the revolver, where it became stuck. the malfunction went unnoticed by the crew, and the same gun was used again later to shoot the death scene, having been re-loaded with blanks. however, the squib load was still lodged in the barrel, and was propelled by the blank cartridge's explosion out of the barrel and into lee's body. although the bullet was traveling much slower than a normally fired bullet would be, the bullet's large size and the nearly point-blank firing distance made it powerful enough to severely wound lee. it was not instantly recognized by the crew or other actors; they believed he was still acting. interestingly, the incident was almost an exact replica of a scene in his father bruce lee's last film "game of death", during the filming of which bruce lee also died. even more bizarrely yet; the plot of game of death revolved around bruce lee's character, a kung-fu actor, faking his own death - by pretending to have been hit by an accidentally fired real bullet while filming a scene where hundreds of blanks were fired at him.

Garry hoy, a toronto lawyer, fell to his death after he threw himself through the glass wall on the 24th floor of the toronto-dominion centre in order to prove the glass was "unbreakable."
