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.man sleeps with dead wife

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.
