Hermaphrodite Removes His Testicles In Public Park
"The 22-year-old is believed to have carried out the horrifying DIY castration in a bid to change sex. He waited nearly 24 hours before staggering into hospital. On arriving at accident and emergency, he told stunned staff he had felt "a lot less pain" than he had expected. He left after being treated with swabs and stitches - and was advised to seek psychiatric help. A spokesman for Derbyshire's Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Trust said last night: "A man in his early twenties presented himself at the hospital minus his testicles, which he had removed the previous day. "He was treated, then discharged from A&E. We can say no more because of patient confidentiality - but this is pretty unusual." It is believed the man, who has not been named, was suffering from "gender confusion issues" and may have been attempting a home sex change before hurling his unwanted privates into Queens Park, Chesterfield." ---Andrew Parker reports from The Sun in the UK.
