‘World’s dirtiest man’ dies shortly after taking first bath in over 60 years

​An Iranian man died at the age of 94, shortly after taking his first birth in over 60 years.

Amou Haji died with the title of “world’s dirtiest man,” after spending over half a century without visiting the bathroom.

Though there were no medical records to show why he despised water, the octogenarian breathed his last on Sunday, moments after taking shower, in the village of Dejgah in the southern province of Fars.

Despite developing strong resentment for a visit to the bathroom, ‘Uncle Haji’ found joy in smoking a pipe filled with animal excrement and eating rotten roadkill.

But while he lived comfortably under dirt and sweat for over 720 months, without showering, the late finally succumbed to pressure from locals to finally take a bath.

Unfortunately, he got sick and later passed on, soon after having his first bath in over 2, 880 weeks.

In 2014, Uncle Haji told Tehran Times in that his refusal to bathe was due to childhood “emotional setbacks”. He added that attempts to make him bathe or offers of clean water made him sad, IRNA reported.

The late Uncle Haji believed being clean harmed your health, the Iranian Fars News Agency reported.
