A psychic in Thailand named Theprit Palee was in the middle of performing a traditional spirit dance in front of onlookers when he decided to stab himself in order to show that he is immortal. And let’s just say that things did not go well.
The 25-year-old was performing the ritual that is believed to honor the ghosts of ancestors — and this show involved Palee pressing the blade of a sword against his chest where it was supposed to break like it has broken in previous shows. Well something went wrong and the weapon failed to break, which of course led Palee to stab himself in the chest.
And unfortunately for Palee, he didn’t make it as he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Take a look at Palee performing this ritual thanks to the LiveLeak video below.
According to a resident, this psychic had provided readings to local people for several years.
“This is a tradition that happens every year. The sword normally breaks but this time it went inside him,” the resident said. “The medium has been respected for many years. People love him. He is one of people’s favorites.”
It is pretty sad that this guy died so young because of a freak accident. But if there’s a lesson to be learned here it is to please don’t point swords at your chest, kids. In fact, don’t even pick up a sword. You are not on Game of Thrones.
