A shopkeeper in China was fatally injured last week after a woman with whom he was clashing clutched his testicles, and squeezed them until he blacked out.

According to local reports, the 42-year-old man, who hails from the southern city of Haikou in the small province of Hainan, was locked in a heated altercation with the 41-year-old woman over a parking spot.

The unnamed woman, who was picking up her child from elementary school, sought to leave her scooter outside the man's shop. When he refused, the two began quarreling. Soon they were joined by the woman's husband and brother, and the tough talk turned to violence.

At some point during the melee, the woman latched on to the proprietor's privates, and refused to let go until the man passed out. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The woman and her brother remain in police custody.
