If thine eye offend thee…
A Chinese man frustrated over “being single,” as MailOnline delicately puts it, cut off his own penis, then, in agony, headed to a hospital where he hoped emergency personnel could undo the damage.
But that is not where 26-year-old Yang Hu’s terribly bad day ends. When he reached the hospital (by bicycle!), Yang realized that he had failed to bring his penis along with him. He rushed home, but by the time he pedaled back, doctors told him his severed member had been without blood flow for too long and that the two could no longer be reunited.
Yang’s friends said that he had been increasingly depressed about the fact that since moving to the city he could not find a girlfriend.
What was worse, they said, was that he was doing such long hours in a clothing factory in Jiaxing, in Zhejiang province in east China, that he doubted he would ever have a chance to meet a woman.
His depression apparently became so severe that upon returning to his rented room around 9 p.m. on Sunday, he made the ill-advised decision to part with an organ that he felt had “he had no use for anyway.” If he was attempting to remove his own appendix, he aimed low.
His friends are critical of the hospital staff saying that they should have sent Yang back in an ambulance to collect himself, which might have allowed his junk to be saved.
