Even though it seems like this story is a happy one, it really isn't! For you see... the day they opened the tomb there was a hawk soaring above them. The hawk was a sacred symbol of the pharaoh to the ancient Egyptians. The Egyptians at the site immediately said the tomb really was cursed, just like the legends had told!!!
What do you think?
The next day, after the tomb was opened, Lord Carnarvan's (The person that paid for the whole search and excavation) pet parakeet died after it was swallowed by a king cobra, another symbol of the pharaoh.
A few days after that, Lord Carnarvan himself got a mosquito bite and died from blood poisoning. They say that at two o'clock, the exact time he died in the Cairo hospital, the lights in that town flickered and his pet dog back in England let out a mournful howl and dropped dead.
Two years after they discovered the tomb, they opened Tut's coffin.When they examined Tut's mummy they found that the scar on his left cheek and neck matched the mark of Lord Carnarvan's deadly mosquito bite.
In 1966 an antiques director went to a meeting to try to stop some of Tut's treasure from being shipped off to Paris, but he failed. After the meeting when he stepped into the street, a car hit him and killed him.
Another time a medical examiner tried to examine Tut's mummy and died suddenly.
Within twelve years of the tomb opening, twenty-one people died mysteriously.
