Snake Bites Man, Man Bites Wife So They Can Die Together

As we've learned from Romeo and Juliet, the tragic death of lovers is what it is: tragic. 

A venomous snake allegedly bit a man as he slept in India Saturday. When he woke, he realized he wouldn’t survive for long, and bit his wife’s arm in an attempt to spread the venom.

Shankar Rai went up to his wife, Amiri Devi, and bit her wrist, telling her he loved her and wanted them to die together so they could remain united in death, India Today reported.

The husband reportedly died at a local hospital, but the wife received treatment for the bite, according to local paper Prabhat Khabar.
