Shouldn't laugh but....... [Oct. 3rd, 2006|03:26 pm]

Damn, talk about unlucky:

Michael Mosey's life was so full of misfortune that the local media dubbed him "Scotland's Unluckiest Man."
The former engineer fell out of bed, into a pond, off a horse and through a glass coffee table. He fractured his ankle and his back, and once broke his right leg by tripping over a puppy. He even ended up partially blinded after drinking a shot of black market vodka.

Michael was married to an equally woman. Frances Mosey once broke both of her legs when she tumbled into a6-foot hole in the road that lacked any warning signs. She purchased motorcycle and fell off of it on her first ride, breaking her shoulder blade. While recovering from a hernia operation, the former telephone operator suffered a fractured skull when a ceiling tile fell on her head. She allegedly died on the operating table during routine procedures in 1963 and 1996, yet was revived both times. Her most unfortunate experience, however, occurred when she accidentally cut her finger off while making dinner. Doctors were unable to reattach it because her dog ate the digit.

The Moseys of Forth, Lanarkshire, experienced approximately accidents and were hospitalized more than 20 times. Ironically, Mr. and Mrs. Havelock met while volunteering as motorcycle couriers, transporting blood to area hospitals. The couple wed on Valentine's Day in 1974 and was enjoying a honeymoon in Spain when their hotel room collapsed. Years later, Michael was out riding a newly purchased motorcycle; Frances accidentally hit him with her car.

Their unlucky state of affairs was so pronounced, and caused so many health problems, that they became unable to work and officially registered as disabled. When asked why their luck was so bad, Michael blamed his wife.
"Since I met Frances, I have broken my ankle and my back. I have fallen from a horse, out of bed, down stairs; into ponds ... you name it. The telephone table has been rebuilt three times after me falling on it. And I have somehow managed to fall through the greenhouse three times," Michael once said.

In 2003, the couple separated. An attempted reconciliation turned violent and Michael was charged with allegedly assaulting Frances with a rolling pin, violently shaking her and resisting arrest. During the trial, he was also charged with driving in the court parking lot during a lunch recess without insurance and without a valid driver's license. The judge refused to grant him bail. Then, while awaiting transport to Barlinnie Prison, Michael collapsed and had a stroke. The domestic violence charge was eventually dropped. Three months later, after receiving probation for the other charges, Michael was again hospitalised for severe chest pains.

Michael Mosey, 57, died on Aug. 22 when his life support was switched off. He'd been hospitalized for several days after suffering serious injuries during a disturbance at his home.
