A man is recovering from a terrifying ordeal involving an 11-foot snake that swam up through the toilet he was on at his home in Thailand recently, according to media reports.
The python emerged from the toilet and sank its teeth into the man’s penis, then would not let go.
Atthaporn 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,” according to khaosodenglish.com.
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, but has full memory of the bizarre 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.
