Man tries death by cucumber: Report

According to 'The Sun', Chin Wei was taken to hospital after his daughter found him lying in a pool of blood; he told doctors, who removed the cucumber from his bottom, that he had inserted it in a suicide attempt.

Chin has claimed the method was a variation of ritual suicide hara-kiri -- usually carried out with a sword plunged into the belly, the British tabloid said.
Medics, however, said a severe tear to the man's rear was not life-threatening.
