Today let's look back and check out eight inventors that died at the hands of their own creations. Not every invention can be a winner, and sometimes it's a legitimate accident that happened to end their life. So be careful with what you create.

Alexander Bogdanov was a Russian polymath that dabbled in using blood transfusions to rejuvenate the body. Unfortunately for him he didn't fully understand blood types and disease, because in 1928 he injected himself with another person's blood. The blood may have been a different type, it didn't help that the blood he was using came from a patient that was suffering from malaria and tuberculosis.
