Vietnamese man dug up wife’s corpse ‘so he could hug her’

A Vietnamese man dug up his wife’s corpse and slept beside it for five years because he wanted to hug her in bed, it has been reported.

The 55-year-old man from a small town in the central province of Quang Nam opened up his wife’s grave in 2004, moulded clay around the remains to give the figure of a woman, put clothes on her and then placed her in his bed, Vietnamnet.vn said.

The man, Le Van, told the website that after his wife died in 2003 he slept on top of her grave, but about 20 months later he worried about rain, wind and cold, so he decided to dig a tunnel into the grave “to sleep with her”.

It gets better, and the ending quote is a candidate for “understatement of the year.”
