Family loses lawsuit after man masturbates to death at sperm bank

23-year-old Chinese medical student Zheng Gang died of a heart-attack while masturbating in a Hubei sperm bank.

According to the International Business Times, it was the fourth time he had donated that week, and his family blamed the bank for his demise.

Zheng was found dead in one of the clinic’s stalls when staff noticed he had been in there for two hours. Although medics tried to revive the student, he was eventually declared dead due to a heart attack.

The family apparently blamed the sperm bank for the Gang’s death, and sought $648,545 compensation in a lawsuit claiming the sperm bank forced him to sign up as a sperm donor and pressured him to make frequent donations of his seed.

The court didn’t agree with this – and they only got 5% of their compensation claim to cover funeral cost. The family appealed and lost.

The courts figured this guy was 23-years-old, it was his own fault he signed up as a donor and besides he was encouraging his male friends to sign up too.

University Student Died At A Sperm Bank After Donating For A Fourth Time In 10 Days

In 2012, Zheng Gang was found by hospital staff in a private booth at the Wuhan University’s sperm bank after being unresponsive for two hours.

The 23-year-old med student was pronounced dead of a heart attack. He had donated sperm four times in a 10 day period.

Originally, Gang’s family sued the hospital for more than $600,000 in compensation, arguing that the clinic had forced Gang into frequently donating at the sperm bank.

Now, however, the court ruled that Gang was capable of making his own decisions and that the hospital was not responsible for his death.

The man was known at the hospital as a vocal advocate for the sperm donation program and would often recommend that others participate.

Government funded sperm bank for lesbians

Britain is to get its first NHS-funded national sperm bank to make it easier for lesbian couples and single women to have children.

For as little as £300 – less than half the cost of the service at a private clinic –  they will be able to search an online database and choose an anonymous donor on the basis of his ethnicity, height, profession and even hobbies.

The bank, which is due to open in October, will then send out that donor’s sperm to a clinic of the client’s choice for use in trying for a baby.
