In a bizarre incident, a Bangkok man recently cremated his dead’s wife body after living with the corpse for over 21 years in one room. The elderly man in Thailand, Bangkok, had been living with her wife’s corpse for over two decades, as a sign of his “eternal lover” for her, believe it or not.

The 72-year-old elderly has been identified as Charn Janwatchakal, who cremated his wife earlier on April 30, almost two decades after her passing. Reportedly, the man earlier lived with his two sons and wife. However, after his wife’s passing, his sons decided to move out as they were not in agreement with his decision to keep the wife’s remains.

The elderly had been living with the body of his wife, which was kept inside a coffin, in a small rickety concrete house. Following the incident, video and pictures of Charn crying and taking the coffin outside his home are going viral on social media.

In the video gone viral, he could be heard saying, “You are just going for a brief business and you’ll be back home again. It won’t be long, I promise.”
