A man let a woman cut him and kill him. He trusted her and knew what she was going to do. However, the two were strangers. What's going on?

surgery involved?
Had the man expected to die? Did he want to die? Was he in danger of dying even before the woman cut him?

Welcome to the forum Miamanno!

Did the man expect to die? Expect to be killed? By her?
Was his cause of death due to the knife & her cutting him? Some other cause?

Are either of their professions relevant? Anyone besides the man and woman relevant? Time period relevant? Location relevant? Had he hoped that something good would come out of his death?

Did the man choose the possibility of dying in surgery over a certainty (or near certainty) of dying in a more unpleasant way? Was this a "mercy killing"? Is his profession relevant?

Location: continent relevant? country? region? city? place within the city?

*****Spoilers*****

You guys pretty much figured it out.

The woman was performing surgery and made a fatal error after opening him up.



Good job, guys.
