Greek philosophers Hylopetes and Alcesacles were reportedly killed in 400 BCE after Hylopetes attempted to jump from a great height into a large trough of water. Alcesacles, fearing his friend was aimed to miss the trough, tried to push it under Hylopetes but instead, tumbled into it and drowned. Alcesacles was right. Hylopetes did miss the container.
