A couple in Wuhan have died after falling out of their apartment window while having sex. The glass pane was, presumably, being used for support and shattered while the two were engaging in coitus, making the couple fall to their deaths. A witness claimed to have seen the couple “holding each other tight” as they fell to the ground.
The exact height from which the couple fell is not known, however a slightly graphic photo of the two naked bodies covered in white sheets with some blood splatter show us that the fall was enough to kill the poor couple.
Although rare, dying while having sex has happened before in other parts of the world. International Business Times has compiled a list of other couples who lost their lives whilst making love.
