In nightmarish news, a man’s penis began to rot after he was attacked by a cobra while sitting on the loo.
The 47-year-old Dutch man was on safari in South Africa when he ended up having to undergo reconstructive surgery on his penis because the snake, which was chilling in the toilet, gave him a bite, causing him to suffer from scrotal necrosis - that’s an infection of the scrotum to you or I.
“His penis and scrotum were noted to be swollen, deep purple in color, and painful on hospital admission. Scrotal necrosis was diagnosed, and he received multiple doses of a non-specific snake venom antiserum and broad-spectrum antibiotics,” it said.
The man reported vomiting and a burning sensation as well as pain that shot up from his groin into the abdomen and upper chest.
