Woman Kills a Man by Squeezing His Testicles to Death
Men Everywhere Grab Their Junk in Commiseration Over the Harsh Death
This may qualify as the most gruesome example of road rage ever: a Chinese shop owner was killed earlier this month when a woman -- literally -- squeezed his testicles so hard and for so long that he died. And the reason behind the fight that led to the man's painful death: a parking space.
Via Gizmodo, the ball brouhaha happened when a 41-year-old Chinese woman in Hainan, an island south of mainland China, drove her scooter near the man's shop. She went to park the scooter right in front of his shop -- she was picking up her son from school in the neighborhood - but the businessman, 42, told her she couldn't park there.
A shouting match ensued, and things got physical, before the woman called her husband and brother, who also came to the scene.
But, according to witnesses, the skirmish was still fairly tame, when the woman grabbed the shop owner's testicles and wouldn't let go. She grasped them so hard and for such a long time that he fell to the ground in pain and never got up again.
He was, as Gizmodo puts it, "dead by ballsqueeze."
Paramedics arrived and tried to revive the man, and he was rushed to a hospital, too, but doctors were also unable to help him.
Gizmodo asked a doctor to explain how, exactly, a man could die from his testicles being squeezed, and it turns out a) it is possible and b) because, essentially, the severe pain of such an attack to the family jewels could spark a heart attack.
Now, men, feel free to resume wincing and covering your junk for the rest of the day.
