If the competition hadn't been timed, or if he'd been a breakdancer, he'd still be alive today.

Was it a dance competition? A talent show?

Was OH impaled with something, or beheaded (so that a breakdancer's tendency to be on the ground a lot would have saved him?

Cause of death?
-natural
-accidental
-murder
-some foreign object entering some part of body?
-bleeding?
-breathlessness
-heart failure
-body hitting some object?

Would some step of a breakdance have prevented him from dying?

Did he win?

Did he participate in the competition? if not, was it because he wasn't a breakdancer? was it a breakdancing competition?

If he had been a breakdancer would he have been elsewhere? at a breakdancing competition?
Was he a spectator? judge? other official? was he in charge of timing the competition?

Hm.
Was he supposed to be a participant but didn't participate because he was already dead?
Was he supposed to be there at all?

Was time critical to the results of the competition? Person(s) who took longest time win? Person(s) who took least time?

Was he trying to manage his act/preformance around some timing when he died? because of which he died?

Some skill learnt if you are a breakdancer relevant to the manner in which he could have saved himself?

Was time critical to the results of the competition? Irrel. exactly how thw competition was timed. Person(s) who took longest time win? Person(s) who took least time? Either would work.

Was he trying to manage his act/preformance around some timing when he died? No.because of which he died? Yes, in part.

Some skill learnt if you are a breakdancer relevant to the manner in which he could have saved himself? No.

Hmm, If the competition hadn't been timed, yet time was still a focus of the competition, one would expect all competitors on the floor at once. Had he been a breakdancer, the audience would be packed right around the dance space. So could it be possible that if in these two situations, he would have been surrounded by people, and that this would have an impact on why he wouldn't have died? For example, if he died by a sniper bullet, if he was moving with many people all around him, he would not be a very easy target to hit.

Ummm...I think the answer I'm going for is no, slight FA. For example, if he died by a sniper bullet, if he was moving with many people all around him, he would not be a very easy target to hit. Oh, I see. No, nothing like that. Good guess though.

What about breakdancing is relevant... music? music equipment? clothing? moves? being used to spinning around and the likes? those tiles on the floor?

is his choice of clothing that day a direct/indirect cause of his death?

ok, did he die on his way to the competition? at the venue before the competition started? before he left to go to the competition? maybe he was rehearsing to get the timing just right and that caused him to be late? (not too sure where im going with that one!)

and thats all i got for now.
