A secret tryst on a freezing cold night in Britain ended in tragedy when a cheating husband froze to death while sleeping with his lover in a car.

Syed Hussain, 29, died from hypothermia after spending a night in a car on a cold day just before Christmas, Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

Hussain had been secretly in a relationship with a woman surnamed Akhatar for three years. He was married to a woman in Pakistan a year earlier in a marriage arranged by his family, according to the report.

Hussain and Akhatar spent the night in his garage on the cold night when temperatures fell to minus 10 degrees Celsius. When she woke around 3 a.m. and found Hussain collapsed on the garage floor with no pulse. He was declared dead at around 5 a.m.

The heater in the car in which Hussain an Akhatar spent the night was not running. “We didn’t go to the garage to have sex and we had never had sex in his car,” she said. “We had been in the car with the heater on. We were both in a good mood and got on really well and we were flirting with each other,” she recalled the time. “I fell asleep at about midnight.”

The coroner said that Hussain died from “a natural event from excessive cold” and said “the circumstances would probably merit a verdict of misadventure.”

불륜남, 저체온증으로 동사

영국에서 폭설이 내린 혹한 속에 정부(情婦)를 만나던 20대 남성이 저체온증으로 숨졌다고,데일리 메일이 보도했다.

지난해 12월19일 사이드 후세인(29)는 정부 샤바나 아크타르를 만나 섭씨 영하 10도에 달하는 혹한에 차를 끌고 차고로 피신했다.

가족들의 강압에 못이겨 불행한 중매 결혼을 한 것으로 알려진 후세인은 가족들과 파키스탄에 있는 부인 모르게 3년간 아크타르를 계속 만나왔다.

차고 안에서 차 안에 히터를 틀고 이야기를 나누던 이들은 잠이 들었고, 새벽 3시쯤 히터가 꺼진 차 안에서 잠을 깬 아크타르는 차 밖에 쓰러져 있는 후세인을 발견했다.

놀란 아크타르는 신고를 했고 출동한 구조대는 새벽 5시쯤 후세인이 사망했다고 선고했다.

검시 결과도 후세인이 저체온증으로 사망한 것으로 나왔다.
