A man trying to stop his unfaithful wife from leaving with her boyfriend was carried on the bonnet of their BMW for 5 miles before he lost his grip and fell off.
The husband, surnamed Hsieh, 47, struck his head on the ground and spent four days in intensive care before being declared dead on 6th February.
CCTV footage of the incident shows Hsieh clinging to the bonnet of the BMW as it speeds through Guanyin District in Taiwan’s north-western city of Taoyuan City on 2nd February.

Hsieh’s wife, surnamed Chang, 42, had become estranged from him in recent years and allegedly began a relationship with a new man, surnamed Pan.
Hsieh, who had been married to Chang for nearly 20 years, had two sons and a daughter with his spouse, who he discovered in January was cheating on him with Pan as they were still married and he believed still had a future together.
The desperate husband and a concerned friend managed to track down the wife on the day before Chinese New Year’s Eve.
She was with her boyfriend Pan, 46, as well as a BMW owner, surnamed Tsai, 39.
According to reports, Hsieh begged Chang to return home for a Chinese New Year reunion with their family and children, but she refused.
When the trio began driving away, Hsieh allegedly jumped on the BMW and lay on the bonnet.
Authorities say the vehicle was driven at speeds of up to 90 kph (55 mph) for 9 kilometres (5.5 miles) before Hsieh eventually lost his grip and fell off.
The police say all three will be charged with manslaughter.
