A Japanese grandmother was upset at her 69 year old husband, so she tossed a water bottle at him, strking him in the back of the head.  She then left her Tokyo apartment, returning 5 hours later to find her husband unconscious.  She also apparently broke one of his ribs by hitting her with the water bottle, which, it should be noted, was filled with water.

Was this an accidental merc by bottle or did this woman lose her mind, or is she a serial abuser and her husband is one of many men who suffer in silence from such abuse?  The article does not offer answers to any of these questions.  As a matter of fact, it doesn’t even ask them.  It does claim she admitted to assaulting him, but she blamed ‘caregive fatigue.’
