Everybody dies of the same thing

When I was in RT school we had an instructor who decided that everyone dies of the same thing: Hypoxic Hypoxemia. This is lack of oxygen to the lungs, and then to the tissues and brain. Regardless of the cause, most of us die because our brains do not receive enough oxygen. Thus, we all die of the same thing.

There was only one exception we could think of:
  1. Explosion

Can you think of any more exceptions?

By your rules, even your exception isn't really an exception. Someone shot in the head would still be dying of hypoxia, by that definition.

Your parachute didn't open--does that fit your definition?
