The title of this article is “World’s Dirtiest Man Reportedly Dies ‘No Long After’ His First Bath In 60 Years, At The Age Of 94.” Amou Haji is a man from Iran who was dubbed the “world’s dirtiest man” due to how long he went without bathing. He passed away at the age of 94.
The “dirtiest man in the world,” who was from Iran, died at the age of 94. The Guardian said that Amou Haji had not taken a bath in more than 60 years before he died in Dejgah on Sunday.
People in the area said that he didn’t bathe because he had “emotional setbacks in his youth,” the article said. The BBC said that Haji was worried that using soap and water would make him sick.
He finally gave in, and The Telegraph quotes Iran’s IRNA news agency as saying, “For the first time a few months ago, villagers took him to a bathroom to wash.” “Not long after that, he got sick, and on Sunday… he died.”
No one from Haji’s family is known to have survived, but he was loved in the village. Some people even built him a cinderblock hut to sleep in.
His fame spread further after he went viral for smoking a handful of cigarettes at a time. He would also use a metal plumbing object to smoke animal waste, The Telegraph added.
It was reported that he would eat rotten porcupine roadkill, and he drank five liters of water daily from a dirty bucket, per the publication.
Physicians from Tehran reportedly evaluated him earlier this year, and he was deemed healthy.
Photos of Haji showed that he had a long grey beard and was covered in soot. In one picture, he is sitting barefoot on the ground next to rocks and trees. As he looked away from the camera and held a rusty cup in his hands, it looked like his nails were black.
