A term used to describe the process in which faulty genes correct themselves by rendering the possessor of said genes unable to propagate, or, more commonly, dead.

This phrase is used in a semi-joking manner when discussing deaths that could have been prevented had the deceased exercised a bit more common sense. Most likely the use of this term stems directly from The Darwin Awards, which showcases the finest in fatal instances of human stupidity.
