MMA Fighter Killed in Slaughterhouse by Falling Cow Carcass

A professional MMA fighter from Scotland died last week after being crushed by a cow carcass in a slaughterhouse. That’s probably not what you want your obituary to read, but then again, if you’re dead, does it really matter what your obit says?

23-year-old Alexander McCrae had been working at the slaughterhouse for about a month and was an MMA fighter on the side. He had just began a professional career and aimed to go full-time, according to the Daily Record.

But on Thursday, he was crushed by a cow carcass that fell on him. His death is being investigated, but they believe he “suffered a heart attack when a carcass fell from a hook on a conveyor system and hit him on the head.”

McRae’s friends say they thought it was a joke because that’s the type of guy he was. Unfortunately, it wasn’t.

Death by falling cow carcass. It doesn’t get much worse than that.
