A man bitten by a venomous snake in Bihar bit his wife on her wrist as his last wish was to die together. The woman was later saved by a doctor although the man died.

According to Gulf News, the incident took place in Samastipur district, some 90km north of Patna, on Saturday.

Shankar Rai, a local of Birsingpur village in the district, was bitten by snake while he was asleep in his home Saturday night. When he woke up in the morning, he found his condition worsening and suddenly turned emotional.

After realizing that he won't survive, he rushed to his wife Amiri Devi and bit her hands saying he loved her very much and wanted to die together. Both fell unconscious soon, witnesses said.

Immediately they were rushed to a local government hospital where the man died soon after being admitted there. However, the woman was saved by the doctors due to timely medication.

The victim’s wife said that her husband sank his teeth into her wrist wishing to die together and remain united even in death but his last wish remained unfulfilled.

“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,” Gulf News quoted the woman as saying.

    The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
