It ended tragically for a 56-year-old woman, who died while having sex with her 50-year-old brother-in-law in Durban on Thursday.
It’s understood that the secret lovers had booked a secluded hotel in Verulam, north of Durban.
Their plan was to have quality time.
But their love-making episode ended abruptly after the woman complained of breathing problems.
After having difficulty breathing, the woman collapsed.
Shaken, the brother-in-law called the emergency services – and not his family – as he feared this would expose their secret love affair.
Another source said at that time, the shamefaced brother-in-law had a tinge of hope that his lover would wake up.
While waiting for the emergency services, he paced around the ensuite hotel room.
But he was in for a bigger shock as the medical team from Reaction Unit South Africa (Rusa) confirmed the woman dead on arrival.
“On arrival the man stated that he and his sister-in-law had booked into the room at approximately 09:30 this morning. After spending a few hours together the woman complained of respiratory distress during foreplay and became unresponsive,” said the unit.
The reaction unit, which was the first to arrive on the scene, said that an investigation was underway to determine the cause of death for the woman.
The unit would not disclose the name of the deceased, and withheld further information.
According to a local business owner, the couple were regular guests at the hotel.
“I’m here most of the time, and I see people who walk in and out of the hotel. I used to walk inside the hotel, but I thought they were a normal couple.”
Provincial police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala confirmed the incident but said no case was opened.
“No case was opened due to the fact that she died of natural causes.”
