Frustrated when his colleague kept on telling him the ending of books, a scientist in a remote outpost in Antarctica resorted to violence:
Sergey Savitsky, 55, and Oleg Beloguzov, 52, were avid readers to pass the lonely hours during four harsh years together. But Savitsky became angry after Beloguzov kept telling him the endings, it is alleged. The victim is now in intensive care after being flown from Russia’s Bellingshausen research station on King George Island to Chile with a knife injury to his heart.
Savitsky is now under arrest under what is believed to be the first attempted murder in Antarctica.
