Authorities investigated the strange case of a man who was discovered dead in a standing up position.

An unnamed friend of 35-year-old Andrew Evans had gone to visit him at his house when he noticed him through the window standing up in his kitchen. Calling to him but receiving no response, his friend went inside and found that he was dead. Evans had seemingly blacked out while reaching up to fetch something down from a cupboard and had remained locked in that position.

An investigation of what had happened later revealed that Evans had injured his head prior to his death, but due to excessive alcohol consumption had not been aware of it. The coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death but noted that the case was 'bizarre'.

"Andrew Evans was discovered by a friend, who visited him at his home in East Grinstead, West Sussex, on May 10 this year."

I once found a young man standing up dead - on one leg. I was waiting on a bus at the intercity bus station at Amsterdam Central Station a number (8?) of years ago. It was winter and it was cold and it was an afternoon. I noticed someone standing about five meters away, leaning on the upper bar of a railing and looking at the water in the canal below. I did not think anything about it. Time passed. People arrived, got on busses and left. Then I noticed that this person had not moved. He was still in the same position, leaning with his chest on the upper bar of the fence. I started to pay atten... [More]

They passed him by not knowing he was dead. You however left him knowing that either he was ill or dead!!! If he were alive he may have been having a TIA or an Absence seizure eyelid myoclonia is common with both. But how,how could you leave him??? well if that had been south London, someone would have took his necklace, watch, wallet and any other valuables, and left him standing...Ive seen it happen even on drunks

They said they alerted the bus driver, who presumably stayed and called 911 or something. I'm assuming they left on a different bus though. I can't imagine the driver just going back his rounds without calling it in.
