In 1961, 87-year-old Harry Meadows, a resident at the Haslemere home for the elderly in Great Yarmouth, England, achieved late-in-life notoriety when he accidentally killed 3 other residents of his care home by dressing up as the grim reaper and peering through the residents’ lounge window whilst holding a scythe.

The year before Harry’s performance, another resident of the same home, the then 81-year-old Gladys Elton, for reasons best known to herself, had conceived the idea of performing a striptease for her fellow residents of the home; unfortunately such was the effect of Elton’s performance that it caused the death of one resident by way of a cardiac arrest and the treatment for shock of five other residents.

The home was forced to shut down as a result of these two incidents.
