Memorable Death •

In 1985, Andrew was flying hundreds of pounds of cocaine by plane, when the engine failed, and he panicked. Thornton pushed at least 40 pounds of the drug out of the plane, put the aircraft on autopilot, and rapidly strapped another 75 pounds of cocaine on himself. With the packages secure, Andrew jumped from the plane. Photo credit: Universal Picture
