An alleged psychic medium in Thailand unexpectedly perished during a 'spirit dance' designed to demonstrate his immortality!
Performing the ritual for a crowd of spectators, Theprit Palee pressed a lengthy sword into his chest directly over his heart.
In previous showcases of the dance, the sword would dramatically snap in two as a testament to Palee's purported power to cheat death.
However on this occasion, his skills were clearly lacking or his assistant swiped the wrong sword from backstage.
