And just to finish off today with another severed penis…
A 6-year-old boy’s penis was bitten off by his father in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
The father was believed to be suffering mental disorder at that time.
Doctors restored the boy’s penis with surgery but he may still risk a lifetime of disability.
The boy is now in safe condition and may need long-term psychological therapy to heal his trauma.
Witnesses said the father, 32, was taking the boy and his four-year-old sister, all naked, for a walk in the street.
He asked the boy to bite his penis and when the boy refused, he attacked him.
When people realized what had happened, they rushed to rescue the boy who was already screaming with blood gushing out of his crotch.
They held down the father and picked up the penis that was thrown into the shrubs.
Police detained the father and the boy was rushed to a hospital. The girl was later picked up by her relatives.
The divorced father lived with his children in a rented room about 500 metres away from the site of attack.
Neighbours said he used to treat his children well until this year when he looked abnormal.
The man was jobless and about 90,000 yuan in debts after his wife left him in 2010 over their business failure.
The man has been sent to a hospital for medical treatment, Shenzhen police said.
