That's very very rare... and in most cases, with some knowledge you can 
move the odds of that sort of thing to basically zero. You're much more 
likely to get struck by lightning, or fall off a cliff, or get hit by a 
car while hitching, or get bit by a rattler, or get swept away by a 
river, or be attacked by a swarm of yellowjackets... hmm, maybe this 
list isn't helping. Good luck out there!
