Man Sleeps with Dead Wife for Five Years



They say love knows no boundaries, but this is taking it a little too far.
A Vietnamese man has been sleeping next to his wife’s corpse for the last five years,

Le Van, a 55-year-old man from Quang Nam province, Vietnam, lost his wife in 2003.
Because he couldn’t go to sleep at night without hugging his beloved spouse, he slept on top of her grave for about 20 months. When he couldn’t stand the rain and wind
anymore, he decided to dig a tunnel into the grave, so he could sleep with his wife.
When the kids heard his crazy plan, they did everything they could to stop him, so Le Van
had to think of another way he could cuddle up to his wife at night. In 2004 he unearthed
her remains, wrapped them in pieces of paper and a clay mould and put a dummy mask
on her face. The man has been sleeping next to his dead wife ever since.
