Creating RPG fight code

Can someone please help with some code? I have been making a game, but there is a problem with one scenario. When the playable character encounters an NPC and they fight, the game keeps going until the NPC is dead, even though the Playable Character is dead.

  1. ranger_health = 10
  2. ranger_damage = 4
  3. print "You head off down some small hills that go off the path."\
  4.       "\nYou encounter a lonely Ranger sitting on a stump.  He asks you if he can join your trip.  \nBear in mind, he will not fight for you."

  9.     print "The ranger joins you on your trip.  Yay."

  12.     print "The ranger is offended and draws his sword.\n"

  17.         attack = 3

  34.             ranger_health = ranger_health - attack
  35.             health = health - ranger_damage
  36.  
  37.             print "You're hero takes a swing and the ranger has", ranger_health, " health remaining."\
  38.                   "But you have", health, "hit points remaining\n"
  39.             if ranger_health <= 0:
  40.                 print "It sucks"
  41.                 exit
  42.             #gain an item for defeating ranger
  43.  
  44.             elif health <= 0:
  45.                 print "You died.  Bet you wish you stayed at the inn.\n"

How do I stop that problem?
