Hardcore hero died suddenly without being hit

Bug Report
My crusader died on torment 5 Nephalem Rift without being hit.
This happened around 10:00 PM Sunday June 23 2019 (UTC+02:00)

Worth mentioning that with this hero and gear I've finished torment 7 rifts with hardly taking damage.

This makes no sense, and I also have a printscreen with the area I've died.

Did you accidentally equip a set piece and kill your LoN bonus?
I had no set items equipped.

You should edit your OP and replace the statement I quoted with the Direct Link to the screenshot. (It doesn't help if you say you have it and then don't post it).

Thanks for posting the screenshot. Unfortunately, it's difficult to tell what might have killed you as the image was captured while the Chat Window was closed.

I see some monsters still on the board. A variety of Fallen, one of which is a Fallen Shaman. They are easy to kill, but can also be deadly when they are in groups. Especially if you have low Fire Resistance. I also see a Soul Ripper close by. I can't tell what is directly in front of you.

It doesn't appear that you were in a ground-damaging effect (DoT). But, something must have hit you.

I'm sorry for your loss. Good luck with the rebuild.

I had around 100.000.000 toughness, and in T7 I had no problems, and it suddenly died here in one supposed* hit, because life didn't dropped gradually.
The chat window showed "... was slained" without monster name.
Two possible causes, one is killed by reflected projectile, the other is the monster already dead when you died. I believe it was the latter case. Some poison clouds were on the field. Those poison clouds had high damage, very deadly.

Also, you didn't equip cheat death passive "Indestructible"; unusual for HC char:

I have no problem with the hero's death. I'm a big fan of Diablo II, where we died like men.

I'm just saying, from my point of view, this was a bug because life did not drop gradually, and with no mobs around, in T5 difficulty.

If there was a cause of the death, then no bugs. The poison clouds were dangerous. I've many SC deathes were killed by them, even I had stepped away immediately. It took only a fraction of a second to kill you.

There was a poison cloud very close to the center (your corpse). I believe it was the cause.

Probably, but I seriously doubt it, because, as I've mentioned before, this was instant kill on T5, no life drop, nothing, just dead.
