A man who went to the toilet in the morning had a nasty surprise – after a python bit his penis.
Atthaporn Boonmakchuay, 38, was using the squat toilet at home in Bangkok, Thailand, when he felt a surging pain in his manhood.
He reached down and a four metre long python had clamped its killer jaws around his penis.
Atthaporn screamed for his wife, Sawittree Shooyoung, for help and to bring in a rope.
He prized the serpent from his manhood before used the rope to tie it up but within moments he passed out from a loss of blood.
Paramedics rushed Atthaporn to hospital while rescue workers caught the snake, which was still trapped in the toilet.
‘I was careful to unhinge the reptile’s jaws rather than forcing it free and risk permanent damage to myself,’ he said after regaining consciousness.
The snake entered the toilet through sewerage pipes. It has now been released into the wild.
