Man fakes his death to escape debt; wife kills herself and two kids
A Chinese man who faked his own death to escape debt ended up losing his entire family in the process.
The man had racked up £11,000 (Dh52,631) in internet gambling, as per Daily mail report.
To get rid of the debt, he bought a life-insurance policy worth £100,000 (Dh478,000).
He then borrowed a car and drove it into a river to make it look like he drowned without telling his wife of his plans.
After a few days of his 'death', his wife wrote a suicide note and posted it online, saying "All I want is our family of four to be together".
She took their two children, aged 4 and 3, to a pond and drowned herself.
The following day, the man turned himself into the police.
He is being detained for insurance fraud and damaging property.
