TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A man angry to find his wife with her lover inside a car, clung to the hood for 8 kilometers, before being flung from the vehicle in Taoyuan, Taiwan on Feb. 2, and succumbing to his wounds four days later.

On Feb. 2, a 47-year-old man surnamed Hsieh (謝) found his 42-year-old wife of 20 years and mother of his three children surnamed Chang (張) in a car with another man. Furious and demanding that his wife get out of the car, he jumped on the hood of the vehicle, only to have the driver speed off, leaving Hsieh clinging for his life, reported UDN.

According to local media reports, Chang had been involved in a love affair for a year. When Hsieh found out, the couple became engaged in a heated argument, and he allegedly beat her during a fit of blind rage, leading to a court battle over domestic violence.

Chang moved out of their home because of the domestic violence incident. However, after Hsieh promised to never hit Chang again, the two renewed their relationship.
