List of Inventors Killed by Their Own Inventions

List of inventors killed by their own inventions

Wikipedia brings us this list of inventors killed by their own inventions. The list is a catalogue of misfortunes, hubris, and cautionary tales. Take for instance the fellow pictured here, Franz Reichelt, who fell to his death at the Eiffel Tower during an unsuccessful test of his coat parachute in 1912.
