Thai man on mend after toilet encounter with penis-biting python


BANGKOK: A Thai man who fought off a three-meter (10-foot) python that bit his penis while he was squatting on the toilet is recovering, hospital staff said Saturday.Atthaporn Boonmakchuay was admitted after surviving the nightmare encounter with a snake hiding in the toilet plumbing at his home in Chachoengsao province east of Bangkok. “He can urinate as normal and his pain from the wound has reduced,” a supervisor at the local Chularat 11 hospital told Agence France-Presse. In an interview, Atthaporn told local TV channels that the toilet appeared empty when he peaked in before taking a squat but after a while the snake rose from the toilet bowl and bit him. He said he grabbed the serpent’s neck to prevent it from taking him down then he managed to pry open the python’s jaws, after which his wife and neighbor rushed to the blood-splattered scene to cover the snake’s head with a plastic bag.
