$5 Death Punch

Ever been somewhere hanging out with friends, having a good time, when all of  a sudden someone dares you to do something crazy? Sometimes that dare may even be painful, and may involve others unwilling to participate. More than often we don’t stop to think about the consequences of what we’re about to do. What if someone offered you $5 to let a stranger punch you in the face?

 

 

 

 

In 2011, a 22-year-old woman allegedly killed an aspiring rap singer with a single punch for a $5 party bet.
Tiffany Startz is accused of killing John ‘Fatboy’ Powell with a single blow to the face and has been told she has to stand trial.
The 25-year-old had agreed to be hit in the face by Starr in return for $5.

The man took the punch, collected his money, and walked away to talk to some friends, as if nothing was wrong, but soon collapsed. His autopsy revealed that he died from a brain hemorrhage caused by blunt force trauma. If you can avoid being hit by anyone in life, then you should take that as a win, and not look for a reason to get hit in the face, even if it’s for money.
