Hong Kong - Last month in Hong Kong, a 62-year-old man attempted to commit suicide using an ancient Chinese method, he told doctors. He inserted a zucchini in his anus, hoping to bleed to death. The medical team was able to save his life.
According to, "When asked by the medical assistants, the man said he wished to die and that it was an ancient way to take one's own life."
The incident occurred on March 22, 2010. According to Ming Pao the man was named Lam and the incident occurred in the Cheung On Estate in the Tsing Yi district of Hong Kong. (A transliteration and translation of the Ming Pao article is available here.)
His daughter said she "returned home at about 10.40pm and was shocked to see her father moaning in pain and lying in a pool of blood."
Needless to add this has set online forums abuzz with comments including the following:
Rectum? Nearly killed him!
