An 80-year-old Iranian man is the world record holder for the man who has stayed the longest without bathing. According to the Iranian News Agency (IRNA), Amoo Hadji has spent the last 60 years without a bath.
The news agency reports that Hadji lives in the village of Dezhgah in the Dehram district of Fars province in Iran.
“The man eats dead animals, and his most prized possession is his pipe, which is 3 inches in diameter, in which he smokes animal dung. Amoo Hadji lives in a stone shack built for him by his neighbours and he rests in a hole in the ground resembling a grave,” reports the Middle East Monitor.
To keep warm, Hadji wears a helmet and lights up several cigarettes. He doesn’t appears to have a family.
Could this be a case of mental illness? How has he survived untreated for so long, if that be the case?
We hope getting the attention of the media would get this man the help that he appears to badly need.
