A 71-year-old-man assaulted a young male carer at an old people's home in Tibro in western Sweden. The attack was of such force that both of the young man's testicles were crushed.

The Swedish Work Environment Authority wants Tibro council to look into the matter and work out how to avoid similar injuries to employees in the future.

The patient has a history of unprovoked attacks, but nobody at the old people's home imagined he would go so far. The carer was alone with the patient when the old man suddenly launched an assault that included kicks to the groin.
