An online video has emerged showing a recently deceased man transported on a stretcher in the street as a prostitute he was with remains attached to his corpse.
A crowd of people watched as the duo, hidden under a sheet, was moved by authorities presumably to a hospital to be separated, the Daily Mail reported.
The incident is believed to have occurred in China, the Daily Mail added, also stating that dying during sex is uncommon but has happened.
Becoming stuck together during sex is known as “penis captivus,” which is also rare, a related Sun article stated. It occurs when vaginal muscles clamp down too firmly.
“The muscles of the woman’s pelvic floor contract rhythmically at orgasm. While those muscles contract the penis becomes stuck and further engorged,” Dr. John Dean, a sexual doctor in the U.K., was quoted by the Sun.
How the deceased man and woman eventually became separated remains unknown, the Daily Mail added.
