He escaped a horrible fate, and in doing so, doomed himself to a similar but worse fate.

Is your puzzle based on some book/movie/novel/legend?

Shall do the basics..
He = human? adult? male?
Did fate #2 cause him to die? to be physically hurt more? emotionally?
Are fates #1 and 2 the same thing, just to different degrees? Or by similar, do you mean different processes, but the same outcome, just that the second one was more serious?
Anybody else involved here? Did someone want to hurt him intentionally? did he bring this all on himself? Natural disasters involved?
How much time had lapsed between his escaping fate #1 and meeting with fate #2--minutes? half an hour? more than an hour? more than a few hours? more than a day? a few days? weeks? months? years?
By escaping his first fate, was his second fate unavoidable? Is his occupation relevant?

Is your puzzle based on some book/movie/novel/legend? It's based on something, but none of these. And not a video game, don't worry.

Shall do the basics..
He = human? adult? male? Yep.
Did fate #2 cause him to die? Yes. to be physically hurt more? emotionally? Not necessarily.
Are fates #1 and 2 the same thing, just to different degrees? Not exactly. Or by similar, do you mean different processes, but the same outcome, just that the second one was more serious? This is closer.
Anybody else involved here? Yes. Did someone want to hurt him intentionally? Yesish. did he bring this all on himself? No. Natural disasters involved? No.
How much time had lapsed between his escaping fate #1 and meeting with fate #2--minutes? half an hour? more than an hour? more than a few hours? more than a day? a few days? A day to a few days. weeks? months? years?
By escaping his first fate, was his second fate unavoidable? It would have been hard to avoid. Is his occupation relevant? No.

Fate 2:
was he murdered?
Fate 1:
Was it attempted murder? an attack? If he had not escaped fate 1, would he have died? Would he have been seriously hurt? slightly hurt?
Was it the same person seeking to hurt him on both occasions? A relative? A friend? A lover? An enemy? Was his second fate hard to avoid because his escaping the first had so incensed this person as to make a renewed attack on him necessary, resulting in his death?

Was it a stranger that he did not know caused Fate 1? Fate 2?

If so was the stranger trying to get something from him. Money?
Food? Or was the Stranger out to get someone?

And was Fate 2 a result of trying to escape from the stranger?
Falling off a cliff? Shot? Etc...

On the first occasion, was there a group of people trying to hurt him? What about the second time?
If he hadn't escaped fate 1, would he be a cripple? bedridden? and so wouldn't be able to be in the position that he was in for fate 2 to happen?

So, this man is under threat of some physical harm (? or psychological harm?) from a person (? or group?), and the action he takes to avoid harm lead to his death?
Was the death as a consequence of the method he used to escape the danger?
Was the death as a result of the place he was in when he was in danger? Or the place he was in after he escaped danger?
Was the death something that was likely to happen to this man anyway?

Does he run away from his attackers? Do they chase him? After escaping from them, does he find himself trapped? Does he starve to death in this place, unable to get out?

Did the man move from a place of danger of hurt to a place of death by moving: -
To a different building?
To a different place in the same building?
(If so, horizontally? Vertically? some combination of the two?)
To a different town?
To a different country?
To a different planet?
When the man left left the threat of harm, did he know (or suspect?) he was moving to somewhere with a greater threat? Or did he think he was moving to a safe place?

Did this take place outdoors?
You said the man thought he was 'eventually' moving to a safe place. Did he think he was risking some danger in order to get to the safe place?
Is any transport involved?
Car?
Bus?
Train?
Roller Skates?
Running?
Walking?
Flying?
Skiing?
Swimming?

i am thinking that this is a patient in a hospital or something like that where if his disease/wound was not treated this person would be disabled for life, but if treated, there is a very high chance that this person will die because of the operation.....in this case, it was a failiure and although it cured his initial problem, it somehow damaged him in another, more serious way, giving him only a few days to live...

HEres my theory:

he is involved in organised crime and manages to escape the death penalty by ratting on his fellow criminals. they exact vengeance by having him killed. He dies either way, but the way the criminals kill him is worse (more painful) than death by execution.

I apologize profusely for the length of time between posts. There is an explanation. Not good enough I'm sure, for abandoning my puzzlers.

RECAP
A man who fears serious injury from multiple people, chooses to get away from the situation on foot. He expects to get to safety, but is instead doomed to a similar but worse fate that ultimately ends in death. Something about a medical procedure or something being taken from him is involved...
This is based on a work of fiction, but not a book, tv show, movie or video game.

If he had been operated on, would he lose an external body part? Or an internal one?
Arm? leg? hand? finger? toe? foot? appendix? kidney? liver? bone?
Was his eventual death a slow one or a quick one? Do we need to find out exactly where he ran to? If he had gone through with the operation, but had still come to this place, would he have died? Or would he be physically unable to get to this place after the operation?

If he had, had the operation and lost his eye, would he have not been able to see to get where he ended up? Therefore may have ended up somewhere else?

If he had, had the operation and lost his eye(s), would he have not been able to see to get where he ended up? Therefore may have ended up somewhere else? All possible, but irrelevant.

Fate 2 happened indoors? Outdoors?
The medical procedure would take place in fate 1, right? Would it have been in a hospital?
Is the work of fiction from which you made this story relevant?

Is his profession relevant? Was he into any kind of illegal activity?
If he had escaped by car/airplane/ship (but not walking), would he have escaped fate 2?
Did he die in a building? In a house? In a cave? In a graveyard?
Did he die alone? With someone/some people?
Does this story have something to do with religion?
Is this story based on a TV series (eg CSI)?

He necessarily escapes on foot, correct?
Is this because of his medical condition?
Or because the other means of transport simply aren't avaiable to him?
Or haven't been invented yet?

About the FA: he escapes fate 1 on foot, but does not go on foot to a place where fate 2 happens? Or may be he just walked (not ran) to reach the place of fate 2?
I ask these questions assuming fate 2 happened indoors, as stated on September 26th, 6:12pm.

The reason for fate 2: rain? thunderstorm? lightning? flood? something to do with sun?

Was there actually anything wrong with his eyes? Did they think it was for his good?
Did he look directly into the sun's rays? Did they damage him?
Had they done anything to his eyes to prepare him for their removal? Did this result in his eyes being very sensitive to sunlight?

Did he become permanently blind during phase #2?
If so, was this partly due to the previous error in his eyes?

Is radioactivity involved?
Ultraviolet light?

Did he have cancer in his eyes previously?
Did he get cancer from ultraviolet radiation in place #2?
If, so was that due to a hole in the ozon layer or something similar?

This has been asked before in some way, but was place #2 mostly a natural environment?
Or was he surrounded mostly by man-made objects there?
Or something inbetwixt?
Or was place #2 in space?

How many people were there in the "group"? 1? 2? 3? 4? more than 4?

Did any of them have any eyes?

Please tell me if this is right:

A man had a problem with his eyes. A surgery was proposed. He decided not to be operated and started to be followed (not chased) by a group of people who would perform a quasi-medical procedure in his eyes. Running away on foot, on a sunny day, he becomes completely blind and this makes him fall from somewhere, causing his death.

Is his blindness directly related to the sun?
Or he got blind as a consequence of the disease he had?
Did the people of the group think he should be blind just like them?
Did this man get stranded somewhere with this group sometime in the past?

Is this anything to do with the saying "In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king?"
Could this man be the only man in the 'country' with eyesight, and feels alone, unhappy, etc. Meanwhile, he is a threat to the rest of the populace, as he is the only one with sight. They persuade him to also be blinded, and he agrees; however, at the last minute, he legs it, escapes to the coast, jumps on a raft, becomes blind due to sunlight (both direct and reflected off sea), never finds land and dies of dehydration; either that or he escapes to the mountains, where he becomes blind from sunlight (direct and snow-blindness from snow), where he dies of hunger or hypothermia?

Is this anything to do with the saying "In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king?" I think that's the name of the episode it comes from.
Could this man be the only man in the 'country' with eyesight, and feels alone, unhappy, etc. Meanwhile, he is a threat to the rest of the populace, as he is the only one with sight. They persuade him to also be blinded, and he agrees; however, at the last minute, he legs it, escapes to the coast, jumps on a raft, becomes blind due to sunlight (both direct and reflected off sea), never finds land and dies of dehydration; either that or he escapes to the mountains, where he becomes blind from sunlight (direct and snow-blindness from snow), where he dies of hunger or hypothermia?
Yes. Good job.
**************A SPOILER! FINALLY!
So, this man is somehow stranded in a lost civilization where everyone is blind. That part wasn't really important to get, the point is that they decide to preform unnecessary surgery on him to remove his eyes. He escapes and runs into the mountains, but is ironically blinded by the bright sun reflecting off the snow-covered hills. And dies alone. Should have stayed back in the village.
This was taken from an episode of an old radio show, possibly "Escape!" although I'm not certain. The end was especially funny, as many dramatic revelations must be on the radio..."My God! I've been wandering in the snow for days--I've become completely blind! I'm so cold...so cold..." etc.
