Man killed by a falling tortoise

Aeschylus, born in c. 525 BC, was a well-known playwright, though not many people know about the bizarre way he died.

An eagle dropped a tortoise on his head.

Apparently the eagle had mistaken author’s glistening bald head for a rock he could use to crack open his hard-shelled lunch. 

But, even stranger, Aeschylus had been spending all his time indoors the last few months because a psychic had said that he would die from an object falling from the sky.
