Ashamed for not having son, man slices off penis

A MAN from China sliced his penis as he felt ashamed for not having a son, reported Kwong Wah Yit Poh.

The 36-year-old man from Quanzhou, known only as Yong, had cut off his organ with a knife after drinking alcohol at his house on Monday night.

It was learnt that the father of two daughters, aged three and 13, was also teased by his villagers for not having a son.

Yong was rushed to a nearby hospital by his family members. Doctors managed to have his penis reattached after a four-hour surgery.

The doctor said Yong would recover fully within a year.
