An elderly man in Taiwan was declared dead at a hospital due to accidentally swallowing his dentures after having sex with a 62-year old prostitute.
The 74-year old man, identified as Chen, was living with a female friend in New Taipei City. The prostitute, who was with Chen in his final minutes, said that when he got up to put on his clothes after having sex, he suddenly collapsed back on the bed. She tried to get help and a rescue team rushed him to hospital only for the doctors to pronounce that he was dead.
"He fell back onto the bed. His eyes were open but he was not moving. I shook his body and tried to wake him up", the prostitute said.
The doctors found out later that Chen had accidentally swallowed his dentures which were stuck in his throat, leading to his death.
