Man Bites Wife After Poisonous Snake Bites Him So They Could Die Together

Man tries to kill his wife because he can't bear to live without her

A man in Bihar was asleep when a venomous snake bit him. Instead of rushing to the hospital like a normal person, he did what any loving husband would do: He bit his wife. The man’s wish was to die along with his wife so he tried to kill her. Unfortunately, the man died; but his wife survived. The incident occurred in Samastipur district, some 90km north of Patna, on Saturday, according to a report in Gulf News.


Shankar Rai, a resident of Birsingpur village, was soon rushed to the local hospital along with his wife Amiri Devi.  However, he died soon after. His wife was saved by local doctors as her treatment started on time. She said she consented to be bitten by her husband. “He told me he loved me too much and want to die together before grabbing my wrist and sinking his teeth into it. I allowed him to do so,” the woman told the media.


Unfortunately for Shankar, he will have to wait a few more years to see his wife in the afterlife. Something tells us she won’t be that eager to meet him. He tried to kill her after all.
