Death Was Not April Fool's Prank, Contrary to Popular Belief

Eduardo Tlatempa, a 48 year-old baggage handler who worked for United Airlines at Dulles airport, was unloading a plane last Friday when, the Washington Post reports, "he missed his step onto a scissor lift and fell 10 to 20 feet to the concrete." This was...hilarious?

Another United employee, who asked not to be named for fear it might jeopardize her job, said Tlatempa landed face-first. She said some colleagues who saw him lying there mistook it for an April Fool's Day prank.

This continues April Fool's Day's uninterrupted streak of never producing anything good, ever.
