How did he die?

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

A man and his wife are eating a meal in a cabin. They finish their food. The wife asks him if he would like some coffee. He says `yes`, and she gives him some. After he finishes his beverage, he excuses himself to use the restroom. Afterwards, instead of returning to his wife, he decides to go outside for some fresh air. Upon seeing this, the wife becomes hysterical and cries about the death of her husband. How did he die?

I hardly get any situation teasers right, since we can't ask the submitter questions, but this one had a bit of trick given away in the hint. Good job!

What kind of idiot would do that? Wouldn't the plane go down too? Why'd he do it? So many questions... Good one though

LOL stupid guy. Did he want to commit suicide or is he just a plain idiot? I thought they were in the middle of a forest and he was like mauled by a bear or something.

Was he being suicidal or was he a nutcase?
