Chinese Man Nearly Dies Mailing Himself to Girlfriend

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- A Chinese man who thought it'd be romantic to mail himself to his girlfriend at her office nearly had his romantic gesture turn deadly when the parcel in which he'd stowed away was delayed.

The U.K. Sun reports Hu Seng even dispatched a friend to snap his girlfriend's surprised reaction, but the pal instead captured the sight of her unwrapping Seng's unconscious body.  Paramedics were called to revive the man, who nearly suffocated to death.

"I didn't realize it would take so long," Seng reportedly said of the stunt.  "I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn't want to spoil the surprise by shouting."

Second Body Part Found in Ottawan Mail 

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(OTTAWA, Ontario) -- Police in Ottawa have confirmed that a second body part was discovered in the mail after a human foot was mailed to the Conservative Party of Canada.

The severed foot was discovered first when a receptionist at the headquarters of Prime Minister Stephen Harper contacted authorities Tuesday after receiving a blood-soaked package.

“Upon arrival, officers noted the package possibly had blood stains on it,” police said in a statement.

The package was addressed to no specific person who worked at the building, according to police.  Harper’s office is not located in the building where the foot was delivered.

The second package was detected later Tuesday by a postal worker who reportedly took note of a parcel’s odor.

Investigators who “won’t confirm or deny” that the second body part was a human hand, according to the Ottawa Sun, are also not saying whether the second body part came from the same body as the foot sent to the Conservative Party headquarters.

Police investigating the bizarre circumstances in Ottawa were in touch Tuesday with authorities in Montreal, where a human torso was discovered in a suitcase.  Authorities in both cities are looking into a link between the cases.
