"Chairway to Heaven", Way to Die #219, is the first death to be featured in "Getting A Rise From The Dead", which aired on September 5, 2011.


A deadbeat dad named Micah who abandoned his family to "find himself" (an act so heinous even the narrator says he wants to kill the man) gets drunk with his friend Larry while setting up his new house, even missing out on his daughter's dance recital. He brings in a pilot seat from a Soviet fighter jet, unaware that it still works. Micah pulls the lever on the seat and is launched 10 feet into the air, causing brain swelling, crushing his skull against the roof within seconds.

"There's a word for guys who abandon their families: deadbeat. But there's a simpler even better one for Micah: dead."
