A wealthy Russian businessman who wanted to propose to his girlfriend decided to test her love for him before popping the question - by faking his own death.

Alexey Bykov hired a stuntman, a make-up artist, a screenwriter and a director to stage a fake car crash.

“When I saw Alexey covered in blood lying in the road, a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears,” Irina Kolokov told Russian media.

Bykov then rose from the dead and proposed to his stunned partner. - The New Zealand Herald
