An Iranian man, nicknamed the “world’s dirtiest man,” died at the age of 94. The man was given this nickname for not taking a shower for more than half a century.

Iranian news agency, Irna, reported that “Amou Haji,” died on Sunday in the village of Dejgah in the southern province of Fars.

According to local media, Haji did not shower with water or soap for more than 60 years.

Villagers said Haji had experienced “emotional setbacks in his youth” which led him to refuse to wash. However, a couple of months ago, villagers had persuaded him to wash for the first time.
