Well, it’s not gory but it is definitely interesting. In fact, this has to be one of the most interesting ways to commit suicide that I’ve ever seen. Yesterday, September 25th, a snake expert named Arslan Valeev, 31, from St Petersburg, Russia, allowed his pet snake, a black mamba, to bite him. Black mambas are well known as being the deadliest snakes in the world. Victims usually die within 20 minutes after a bite. Arslan was upset over a recent break-up with his wife, and during the broadcast.. he gave her number out and pleaded with viewers to call her. Apparently, during a recent argument Arslan beat the woman resulting in her leaving him. During the video he says, “If I die, then I die. I will just stay with you for some time. Just in case.. on my mobile there is a message for Katia.” It is clear that the man is deteriorating very quickly and at the end of the video his eyes roll back into his head, his breathing becomes shallow and his muscles become numb. Arslan walks off camera and dies a few minutes later. The following is the translation for the video:
0:47 – I must do, what I must do.
1:44- Ouch, let go, it hurts. Good, you killed me. I will go live stream now, if I die, I die.
2:31 – i just will stay with you for a while. I make a message to Katia.
3:00- I will just read your messages to me
3:51 – Tell Katia that I love her
4:00 – Beautiful, yes?
4:14 – Goodbye all.
4:44 – I don’t realize that it’s happening to me.
5:26 – Call Katia, maybe I can see her for the last time. I am dying. Good bye.
