A 74-YEAR-OLD man died after he accidentally swallowed his dentures during sex with a 62-year-old prostitute in Taiwan, reported Nanyang Siang Pau.
The man, known as Chen, had been living with a close female friend in New Taipei City after separating from his wife many years ago.
The prostitute said she had sex with Chen for 30 minutes.
She said Chen had got up from the bed, paid her and was about to put on his clothes when he suddenly collapsed.
“He fell back onto the bed. His eyes were open but he was not moving although I shook his body and tried to wake him up,” said the woman, who called the rescue team.
Chen was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Doctors later found his dentures stuck in his throat.
> The daily also reported that Hong Kong celebrity couple Andy Hui and Sammi Cheng plan to tie the knot in August.
Their birthdays fall in that month.
Hui's elderly family members leaked the happy news to the media.
Hui, 44, and Cheng, 39, became good friends after they joined the same recording label in 1988 and embarked on their romance three years later.
Although the couple separated in 2004 after a 13-year relationship, they got back together last year.
The only bachelor of the four Cantopop Heavenly Kings - Aaron Kwok - was also reported to be marrying his model girlfriend Lynn Xiong Dailin in June.
It is learnt that the singer-actor has applied for two weeks' leave in that month from his company.
Kwok is said to be planning his wedding overseas and only a few of his friends knew the location.
