Don't Go There!

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.

Whattt a "situation" but I finally figured it out (my answer was one of two or three possibilities). Rated it tops for FUN!
Thanks for posting and thanks for visiting my teasers.

I thought it was a soldier. XD But then I guess it wouldn't be empty, and he wouldn't *know* he would die...
