Lets see, we have a human or several humans that died from an accident at some sporting event. The clue that confuses me was the fall question.
Don't be confused by that. It's just that a fall can happen at different times with different reasons. f.e. if a not sitting or lying person dies ;)

Case #4
Dozens of yells were heard as one was dead from one second to another. What happened?

Yes (nod)
Is the one who died a human?
Was it an accident?
Was the one who died engaged in some form of sport?


No (wrong)
Were they watching a public execution?
Was it murder?
Did something fall on the victim?
Did he die on stage? (no, but close)
Was it in the middle of a battlefield?
Was the one who died, on a roof just before dying?
Was it a showman whose performance went terribly wrong? (no, but close;) )
Was the one who died engaged in some form of stunt?
Did he die from anything medical condition?
Did the stands collapse at a sports arena?
Did more than one person die?
Did the accident happen on a street?
Was he himself to blame for the accident?
Did the victim drown?
Did someone push a button?
Did something explode?


Unanswerable or Ambiguous :-\
Did the victim fall? (when, where, why?)

Was the dead person male? (Even if it doesn't matter, just to make the pronouns easier)

Was the person wearing or supposed to be wearing a parachute or something else to soften a fall?
Was the person in a vehicle/machine of some kind?

Were the yells in response to the death?
Were the yells in response to whatever caused the death?
Did the yells (directly or indirectly) cause the death?

Yeah, I found that as well. :-D

Was she a dancer of some kind? (Trying to think of what's similar to a cheerleader)
When you say "dozens of yells", was that approximately the size of the audience?
Did they yell to try to warn her about something?

Was she killed by another person (or multiple people)?
Was she killed by some kind of mechanical/equipment failure?
