According to official media, an Iranian man known as the “dirtiest man in the world” for going decades without a shower has passed away at the age of 94.
Amou Haji, a single man who had not taken a shower in more than 60 years, passed away on Sunday in the hamlet of Dejgah in the southern province of Fars, according to the IRNA news agency.
Haji avoided taking a shower out of concern that he could “become ill,” according to a local official reported by the news agency.
IRNA, however, stated that “for the first time a few months ago, locals had taken him to a restroom to wash.”
According to Iranian media sites, a short documentary film called “The Strange Life of Amou Haji” was produced in 2013 on his life.
