Melbourne, March 30 (ANI): An Indonesian teenager chopped off his penis and threw it into a well after his girlfriend decided to marry someone else.
The 19-year-old from a village in Central Java province arrived in hospital in critical condition from blood loss but medical personnel managed to save his life, health authorities said.
"He arrived at the hospital last Thursday in critical condition from blood loss. Cutting off a penis can be fatal," News.com.au quoted Cilacap General Hospital Director Sugeng Budi Susanto as telling local media.
Doctors were unable to re-attach the dismembered member because villagers could not find it.
Sugeng said that the teenager spent several days in intensive care but is now in recovery and had not spoken to anyone about the incident.
"He's still too shocked and embarrassed to talk to or see anyone," Sugeng said. (ANI)
