An Iranian man called the "world's dirtiest man" after going decades without taking a shower has reportedly died at the age of 94, according to state media.
Amou Haji, a single man who did not wash himself up for more than half a century, died on Sunday in the village of Dejgah, the IRNA news agency reported.
It was reported that Amou Haji avoided showering for fear of "getting sick", but "for the first time a few months ago, villagers took him to a bathroom to wash.
According to other reports, the local villagers believed that the hermit had undergone “emotional setbacks in his youth” which may have caused some sort of trauma that led him to refuse to wash in the first place.
A short documentary about his life, titled "The Strange Life of Amou Haji," was made in 2013.
One of the users linked the condition of Amou Haji to aquaphobia on Twitter.
Amou Haji lived in a shack built by local villagers and smoked a pipe filled with animal excrement. He was also often found roaming around the streets covered in soot and believed that fresh food could make him sick, the Tehran Times reported.
So, what do you think Amou Haji actually suffered from Aquaphobia or, was it some sort of trauma that he faced in his early life?
