CHACHOENAGSAO, Thailand — A man in Thailand is recovering from a terrifying ordeal involving an 11-foot snake that swam up through the toilet he was sitting on in his home, east of Bangkok.
The python sank its fangs into Atthaporn Boonmakchuay’s penis and wouldn’t let go.
According to khaosodenglish.com, Boonmakchuay called for his wife to get a rope and managed to tie the python’s head to the bathroom door so he could detach himself “before he passed out from loss of blood,” the site wrote.
Boonmakchuay’s wife tells Thairath when she entered the bathroom, she saw her bleeding husband fighting a python. She watched as he tied the snake to the door and wrangled himself free before losing consciousness.
The man is hospitalized and has full memory of the event. He told reporters he carefully unhinged the snake’s jaws rather than forcing the snake free — because he “did not want to risk permanent damage to his self.”
As for the snake, rescue workers dismantled the toilet and were able to take the snake from the home alive.
They were able to smash enough of the fixture to free the snake, which is expected to be released into the wild.
