Man kills wife with hose while trying to solve her constipation in Turkey’s Kocaeli
A 78-year-old woman was killed after her 85-year-old husband tried to solve her constipation with a pressurized hose in the northwestern Turkish province of Kocaeli on Feb. 17.
The incident occurred in the Çayırova district of Kocaeli, when a man tried to treat his wife’s long-running constipation problem by putting a garden hose in his wife’s anus and running water through the hose.
The woman was subsequently rushed to the nearby Gebze State Hospital.
However, she succumbed to her injuries as doctors said her intestines had exploded due to the pressure from the water.
Her husband was detained by police and released after his testimony, in which he reportedly said he had successfully treated his own constipation in the same way.
The prosecutor’s office has started an investigation into the incident.
