A drunk man chopped off his penis after drinking and had to be rushed to the hospital. Sadly, his organ could not be reattached immediately as neighbours forgot it back at his home as they were panicking.
Neighbours rushed to the rescue of Sam Maina, 25, when they heard chilling screams coming from his home in Kericho, Kenya, in the early hours of the morning. He was found writhing in pain with his penis on the bed.
Locals rushed him to hospital for life-saving surgery in Kericho but the operation was delayed because his penis was forgotten on his bed. Police then had to rush to the victim’s house to retrieve the blood-drenched organ.
A neighbour claimed Maina had been drinking and may not have been “fully aware of what his was doing.”
A police report said:
At around 12.50am Antony Kago Kanuthi was in his rental house near Momomiat village.
He heard a loud scream from his neighbour Samuel Maina.
When he rushed to his house he found he had cut his private part.
Kericho Police Commander James Mugera said by the time officers reached the scene they found the severed penis oozing blood on the bed. They then took it to Kericho District Hospital for doctors to reattach it.
But Maina was transferred to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital because “of the nature of the wound,” said Medical Superintendent Japheth Cheruiyot.
He is now recovering after the bizarre drama as officials wait for him to reveal why he mutilated himself.
