Man Bleeds to Death From Picking Nose

When his landlord found his body, he thought Ian Bothwell had fallen from his bed and suffered a blow to the head, but he could tell he was dead. However, a coroner concluded that Mr. Bothwell had actually "...he died from a nose-bleed, consistent with picking his nose."

Bothwell, 63, suffered a brain hemorrhage at age 20. Unable to work, he slid into alcoholism. He suffered dementia brought on by alcoholism and it is unlikely he realized his bad habit was killing him.

The clinical term for a nosebleed is epistaxis and the most common cause is picking one's nose.

So remember kids: don't drink and pick your nose.
