A Hong Kong man, taken to the hospital to have a cucumber removed from his bottom, told doctors he inserted it in a suicide attempt.
The Sun reported Chin Wei, 62, said the method was a variation of the Japanese ritual suicide hara-kiri - usually carried out with a sword plunged into one's own stomach.
He was found in a pool of blood by his daughter before being rushed to receive medical health.
Medics said a severe tear to the man's anus was not life-threatening.
