Death by Testicular Strangulation

Woman kills man by squeezing his testicles.

A woman in China killed a man during a parking dispute by squeezing his testicles until he died.

Here's what happened, according to China Daily

A 41-year-old woman in Haikou City, Hainan Province, was on her way to pick up her child from elementary school when she tried to park her scooter in front of a shop. The shop's owner, a 42-year-old man, objected. They argued. It turned physical. The woman called her husband and brother for help. A fistfight broke out. During the fight the woman grabbed the man's testicles and squeezed them until the shop owner collapsed. He was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Is this even possible?

Gizmodo reports that it is. According to Dr. Irwin Goldstein, "A heart attack could certainly result from severe testicular pain from squeezing."


Can't help but think that in America this dispute would have been handled more civilly-with guns.
