Mr Kidd's death is far more strightforward than the rather intricate way in which his - ahem - male companion, Mr Wynt (q.v.), dies.
Bond is being choked by Mr Wynt as Mr Kidd approaches armed with a couple of flaming chicken kebabs. Bond, despite being choked, manages to smash a bottle of brandy and throw the contents over Mr Kidd.
Net Result: Mr Kidd lights up like a Christmas tree and, in desperation, he throws himself off of the ship in an attempt to extinguish the flames.
Mr Kidd gets flambéed and makes the mistake on not wearing flame retardant fabrics
I have listed this death as both drowning and combustion, as it is ambiguous whether the flames did the job alone.
