Darwin Award Nomination

It’s never too late too late to nominate someone for a Darwin Award.
Earlier this month the Sun reported that last May, Lee Williams, a hospital patient in University Hospital of Wales removed his oxygen mask and lit a cigarette.
Thirty eight patients had to be evacuated during the ensuing explosion and fire. A doctor and two nurses were treated for smoke inhalation and shock.
The explosion closed the hospital for two weeks. Damage was assessed at £50,000.
Williams ended up in intensive care and almost died.
Currently our man is enjoying the Queen’s hospitality having received a five year sentence, which hopefully will be long enough to protect the rest of us, whilst he appreciates the dangers and evils of smoking.

  1. What an idiot. Did he not realise that oxygen and flame are incompatible? He should have been made to pay towards the refurbishment costs as well as serving time at her Majesty’s pleasure.

    • Doubtless he now comprehends that his demonstration of the incompatibility of oxygen and flame was a misunderstanding of his rights as a NHS patient
