Death of Dracula

Spread the love

A college student costumed himself as Dracula for Halloween. As a
finishing touch, he put a pine board down the front of his shirt so he
could “realistically” sink a knife into the board and pretend he was
transfixed by a vampire-killing stake.He didn’t consider the strength of the thin
pine board when he tapped the knife in with a hammer.

Propelled by the force of the hammer, the sharp blade split the soft wood
and buried itself in his heart. He staggered from his dorm room into the
Halloween party, gasping, “I really did it!” before
succumbing.
