A 23-year old Chinese man has died after ‘donating’ his sperm 4 times in 10 days, a NY Daily Post reports say.
Zheng Gang was found unconscious in a private booth at the Wuhan University facility in China’s Hubei province after a staff noticed Gang had not come out after more than 2 hours.
When the door was finally broken, thet found him on the floor, after which he was discovered to have died of a heart attack.
Gang’s family has taken the sperm bank to court saying the clinic was responsible for the death of their son in 2012, demanding a $648,545 compensation, claiming the sperm bank had forced him to enroll an make frequent donations and that the medical staff did not handle the situation properly following the discovery of the unconscious 23-year old.
But a court has ruled that his death was totally his fault as he was old enough to make his decisions, including going on a “masturbatory frenzy.”
Gang had started studying to become a doctor at Wuhan in 2010, joining the sperm bank program in 2011 and was later known for his advocacy for the facility, even encouraging others to donate.
