OUCH! A Thai man is recovering in the hospital after a 10 foot python emerged from a toilet and sank its teeth into his penis. Attaporn Boonmakchuay said the Python was “yanking very hard” as he and his wife tried to wrestle it off.
Doctors say Boonmakchuay, who lost a lot of blood in the ordeal, was making a good recovery. Workers dismantled the toilet and extracted the Python which had slithered through domestic plumbing. It was released back into the wild.
The incident happened as Boonmakchuay, 38, went to the toilet at his home in Bangkok before leaving for work on Wednesday. As he use the toilet he said he suddenly felt a sharp pain. “I felt as though my penis had been severed. The snake was yanking very hard,” he said, according to the Bangkok Post.
As the Python tried to pull him down, he called for his wife and neighbors to help him. Boonmakchuay said that his wife tied a rope around the snake and he pried its jaws open before passing out.
Doctors say Boonmakchuay was recovering well. “He has a really good attitude. Even though his own wife and children were in shock. He’s been smiling and giving interviews all day from his bed.”
