Russian Man Fakes His Own Death To Propose
The nuptials promise of “till death us do part” got an intriguing twist in the Russian city of Omsk when a woman received an elaborate marriage proposal from her boyfriend, who she thought had just died.
Irena Kolokov was caught off guard when she turned up to meet her boyfriend, Alexey Bykov, 30, but found what appeared to be a horrific car accident when she arrived.
Little did Kolokov know when she arranged to meet Bykov at a pre-determined location in the southwestern Siberian city that she was about to have one of the most horrifying — and then happiest — moments of her life.
“We’d arranged to meet at a certain place, but when I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage,” Kolokov told Orange News.
In a video posted on Russia’s Life News, Bykov is seen walking away from the ambulance at the scene.
