A 38-year old man named Attaporn Boonmakchuay from Thailand was having a seemingly typical day when his world turned upside down. He was sitting on his restroom 'throne' to do his business when a python suddenly bites his genitalia. It took 30 minutes to remove the 10-foot snake's jaw from his man-part before he was brought to the hospital.

Boonmakchuay managed to get rid of the snake after his wife and neighbor came to his rescue. The wife entangles the snake with a rope enabling the then weak man to pry open the snake's jaw before passing out probably due to blood loss.

According to reports by local newspapers, the man uses a squat type toilet which had to be dismantled in order to recover the snake that almost deprived the man of his masculinity.

Although images of snakes on the loo seldom emerge in news reports and social media, this incident proves that snakes passing through restoroom pipes really do happen.  

"I wouldn't say its common but it does happen," said Elliot Budd, a snake catcher in Northeastern Queensland, in an interview with CNN in 2015 after responding to a 'snake-in-toilet' situation.

Boonmakchuay's unusual toilet dilemma happened May 25 and he is currently recovering at a hospital giving away awkward smiles to the media. He is now stable after losing a fair amount of blood due to his struggle to get his penis off of the snake.  

"He has a really good attitude ... even though his own wife and children were in shock. He's been smiling and giving interviews all day from his bed," hospital director Dr. Chutima Pincharoen said in an interview with New York Post.

The local fire crew had to use hammers to free the snake from the pipe. Despite the heinous crime it has committed, the animal was pardoned and will be released back to the wild.
