A psychic trying to demonstrate that nothing could harm him ended up committing suicide in the presence of his spectators.
According to Daily Mail report;
Before the incident occured, Wednesday afternoon, Theprit Palee, 25, was performing a Thai traditional dance in front of spectators in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand.
Usually, Palee would press a long sword against his chest but instead of being impaled, the sword would break.
The folk ritual is said to honour the spirits of ancestors and in previous shows he would impress onlookers by appearing superhuman when the blade broke as it was pressed against his chest.
However, on the fateful day, instead of breaking, the sword went straight into his rib cage making him go fatally limp almost immediately.
Crowds gathered round the man as they attempted to revive him but he was later pronounced dead at hospital.
