Man inserts zucchini into anus in suicide attempt

A 62-year-old man was rushed to hospital after he attempted to take his own life the ancient way.

The sexagenarian inserted a zucchini into his anus in the attempted suicide at his home in Hong Kong on Friday.

According to Ming Bao, the man's daughter who returned home at about 10.40pm was shocked to see her father moaning in pain and lying in a pool of blood.

She rushed him to the hospital for bleeding in the anus.

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 man is recuperating at the hospital after doctors removed the zucchini that was left in his rectum.
