London, May 23 (ANI): A bizarre accident turned an 81-year-old man into a sex addict, forcing his family to keep him under house arrest.
Angelo De Luca spent four days in coma after falling out from a plum tree, at his family home in Biasca, Switzerland.
However, after he recovered the granddad experienced a greater sex drive.
In fact, he spent 3,000 pounds of his savings in one session at a local brothel.
"Since my wife died a year ago, Leona has been there for me. It's not only that she's good in bed. She gives me new life force and courage. She is my friend, my only confidant," the Sun quoted him, as saying, referring to the prostitute he has been visiting.
Now, judges ruled that his sex addiction had made De Luca unfit to govern his own affairs and his son Daniele has taken control of his property that includes two houses and bank accounts.
Daniele said: "My father broke seven ribs and his lungs were pierced in the fall. He had to wait for three weeks for surgery.
"He had severe pain and the nurse gave him morphine, maybe too much. My father fell into a coma for four days. That must have wiped out a brain function. The one that inhibits the sex drive." (ANI)
