MELBOURNE - A man in China was bitten on his penis by a snake as he was sitting down on the toilet.
According to the China Times, the 51-year-old Taiwanese man, from Nantou County, Tapei, stood up and saw the big snake.
“As soon as he sat down, he suddenly felt a knife-like pain and reacted instinctively by standing up. When he looked down, he saw the big snake,” the Daily Telegraph quoted the paper as saying.
A director at Puli Christian Hospital said the man was under medical care with minor injuries.
“As soon as he has passed the risk of infection, he can go. A snake’s mouth isn’t always clean,” the director, who declined to be named, said.
Local television images showed the black and yellow reptile, reportedly a species of rat snake, being uncoiled and plucked slowly from the toilet bowl. (ANI)
