Beware Death by Flying Shrimp

So, you're at one of those Japanese restaurants where they cook the food right in front of you. Your chef hurls a sizzling-hot shrimp right into your brother-in-law's forehead like a blazing crustacean third eye. Then he sears your son's arm with another shrimp. So when he slings yet another hot grease-slicked shrimp straight at your face, you twist to dodge it. And you hurt your neck.

A year later, you're dead--the clear victim of shrimpicide.

Thank goodness your family can sue for $10 million to assuage their grief.

Yes, that was the story for one Long Island man. His shrimp-dodge twisted his neck, leading him to seek a chiroprator and multiple doctors, eventually receiving surgery on his neck. A few months later, he died as the result of sepsis, a severe infection. The question is, was the infection related to his surgery, and ultimately, his airborne shrimp dinner?

That's for the courts to decide. In the meantime, you might want to make sure your shellfish comes on a nice, safe plate carried by a friendly waiter.

More horrifying briny details.
