Unbelievable: Mother Kills Herself By Jumping Inside River Because Her Son’s Fiancee Is ‘Too Short’ (Photos)

Tragedy struck in China after a highly emotional mum took her own life because she disapproved of her son’s fiancée’s height.

The 47-year-old Chinese mother killed herself because her son’s fiancée was too short, according to a government statement.

The People’s Daily reports that the woman’s corpse was found on November 17 in a river in Ningling County, Henan Province.

After seeing the woman’s remains, her emotional husband jumped into the river and his son also plunged in to save him. Both were immediately rescued by the police.

Previous reports indicated that the woman committed suicide because she couldn’t afford the expensive betrothal gifts demanded by his son’s fiancée, reported People’s Daily.

Du Chuanfeng, a local police officer, claimed that her son’s fiancée had asked her future in-laws to buy a new car, but the couple didn’t have enough money to do so.

Mr Du said he rescued the woman’s husband and her son from the river.

The Propaganda Department of Ningling County however has denied the claims.

In a post on their official social media account yesterday, the authority said the mother killed herself because she was unhappy about her son’s fiancée’s height.

The woman has been identified as 47-year-old Ms Lin and her husband has been identified as 46-year-old Mr Gao.

The statement read: ‘The dead person, Ms Lin, had disagreement with her son regarding her son’s engagement. 
 ‘Her son’s partner came from the same town as the family. Ms Lin did not like her son’s partner, claiming she was too short.
‘She threatened to kill herself.’
The woman was said to have taken her life ‘on a sudden impulse’ after passing a local river on her scooter.
The woman’s husband, Mr Gao, and her son are yet to release a statement.
