A man playing Judas in a reenactment of the final days of Jesus life has died after he mistakenly hung himself.
Jose Ignacio G, of Barranquillas in western Mexico, was demonstrating how Judas might have hung himself by placing his neck within a noose and standing on a bucket, when somehow the bucket fell under him and he was strung up.
According to The Metro, observers realised something was wrong and rushed to Jose’s help, but he died whilst being rushed to hospital.
According to the Bible, Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver to the Jewish elders who wanted him dead, and later hung himself from remorse.
Jose Ignacio, in his attempt to recreate what happened, did it a little too well and now joins Jesus in paradise. We hope.
