Came across this sentence while reading an account of the history of Halifax, Nova Scotia:

There was only one death during the passage due to careful preparations, good ventilation and good luck,
a remarkable feat when transatlantic expeditions regularly lost large numbers to disease.

Wow, that is ... unfortunate wording.

"Nice job, guys. Thanks to all of our planning and hard work, we killed him."
I lol'd.
