The world can be a terrible place sometimes

And humans can absolutely be terrible to each other.

And today we’re going to hear from AskReddit users about incidents that made them sick to their stomachs.

Check out what they had to say.


“I woke up from an evening nap to the sounds of screaming. At first I thought it was my roommates playing a video game, but soon realized it was coming from my open window. It was just one person screaming, over and over again.

Turns out, our next door neighbor ki**ed herself. It was her cousin screaming after finding her body. Those gut wrenching screams still ring in my ears when I think about that night.”

Oh my God.

“A lady who was having dinner at a local restaurant couldn’t get rid of her hiccups, so the restaurant owner brought a spoonful of vinegar as a remedy.

But he accidentally gave her oven cleaner. Her oesophagus was completely burned and she can now only eat via a stomach bag.”

True crime.

“Sylvia Marie Likens (January 3, 1949 – October 26, 1965) was an American teenager who was t**tured and m**dered by her caregiver, Gertrude Baniszewski, many of Baniszewski’s children, and several of their neighborhood friends.

This a**se incrementally lasted for three months before Likens d**d from her extensive injuries and malnourishment on October 26, 1965, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Likens was increasingly neglected, belittled, sexually humiliated, beaten, starved, lacerated, burned, and dehydrated by her tormentors.

Her autopsy showed 150 wounds across her body, including several burns, scald marks and eroded skin. Through intimidation, her younger sister, Jenny, was occasionally forced to participate in her mistreatment.

The official cause of her death was determined to be a ho**cide caused by a combination of subdural hematoma and shock, complicated by severe malnutrition.”


“The Fritzl case where Josef Fritzl held his daughter Elisabeth, who had just turned 18 at the time, captive in a basement prison for 24 years so he could SA her after telling her mother she ran away.

She gave birth to 7 kids alone down there, 1 of which d**d while 3 stayed imprisoned with her in the basement and 3 he took upstairs to claim his missing daughter had left the babies on his doorstep so he and his wife could raise them.

Easily the most most f**ked up and horrifying case I’d ever seen, and I watch and listen to a lot of true crime. I’m also horrified that his “life imprisonment” term includes that he can be paroled after 15 years which means he could be eligible for parole this year.”

Drugs are bad.

“One of my very close friends was a recovering addict (fent, her**n, m**h) and the night she relapsed due in part to her unbearable tooth pain, she was with some f**ked up people who thought she overdosed and d**d.

Fearing they would be to blame for her d**th, they locked the door on the way out of her RV and set in on fire. By the time anyone realized it was on fire, it was too late. The coroner said she, in fact, was burned alive due to the smoke that was in her lungs.”


“Cambodian massacre.

There are a lot of pictures with thousands of skulls and at that time of Khmer Rouge their life expectancy was below 20 years.”


“I was up late at night with my infant baby and heard moans coming from the apt next door. I thought it was someone getting busy and ignored it.

The next night I heard it louder and then a few hours later heard it again and could make out someone saying help. It was like 4am and everyone in my house was asleep so I text 911.

Eventually FDNY & EMS came and broke into the apt and found an old lady who had fallen in the shower and couldn’t get up.

She was there for 3 days it turned out and was surviving by drinking water from the tub. She lived and was moved to an assisted living home but I still can hear those screams and feel so bad that I ignored it the first night.”

Evil couple.

“Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka.

One of their victims was locked out of her house as punishment because she missed curfew.

They picked her up on her own doorstep.”

Stuck in a cave.

“Nutty Putty Cave.

This story is truly the stuff of nightmares.

I cannot imagine what that poor man must have endured in those hours.”

School tragedy.

“The Uvalde shooting.

The fact that the officers didn’t go in the school where kids were being m**dered because “it wasn’t safe” just makes me sick.”
