"Bangungot, though known by different names, is widespread throughout Southeast Asia. In Thailand it is called lai-tai and is estimated to kill one of every 2,500 young men annually in some areas. 'Widow ghosts' take men away in the dead of night, according to local legends, and the men have been known to disguise themselves as women at bedtime to protect themselves."
