Til death do us part

2012-09-08 17:26

A Russian man wanted to see if his girlfriend really did love him to death – so he faked his own demise.

Alexey Bykov (30) from Omsk hired a movie director, stuntmen, make-up artists and scriptwriter to stage a bogus car crash.

He arranged to meet girlfriend Irena Kolokov at the crash site so she would be convinced.

“We’d arranged to meet at a certain place, but when I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke and carnage,” said Kolokov.

“Then when I saw Alexy covered in blood lying in the road, a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears.”

But the supposedly “dead” Bykov jumped to his feet and proposed to Irena still covered in fake blood.

The couple married last week.
