Man Dies from Picking his Nose


Poor etiquette had dire consequences for a 63-year-old man from Manchester, England. According to Manchester coroner Nigel Meadows, an inquest into the death of Ian Bothwell determined that he picked his nose until he bled to death.

Bothwell, a man who suffered from dementia and alcoholism died from from a nose bleed brought on by constant picking. Initially, it was surmized that he must have fallen out of bed and hit his head, but an autopsy showed no such head injuries.

Evidence contributing to the conclusion included the fact that Bothwell's nasal cavity was filled with blood, indicating epistaxis. Bothwell suffered a brain haemorrhage at age 20. With an inability to work, he spiraled into a life of alcoholism.

  @John and Jane  
Pimples are very tiny staph infections but can enlarge obviously. If you pop that and some of it gets in your blood stream you can very well die or suffer a stroke.

  What a way to go... =\  
Imagine if there is an afterlife and you're in a group of people discussing how you died.

"I died in a fever trying to save my family!"

"I died when flood waters took me by surprise."

"Hey you.. new person, how did you die?"

'I picked my nose and bled to death.'

It goes good on a salad.
