(Scroll down for video) A man is in critical condition after ripping off his own private part while hallucinating from poisonous mushrooms, according to hospital officials in Michigan.

Michigan police said that the Ohio man is recovering after ripping off his own private parts while under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

The Office of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies said they responded to a burglar alarm at Ypsilanti Middle School where they found the 41-year-old Columbus man naked, screaming and bloody from the waist down.

“He really did not say much at all. There was just a lot of shouting and screaming,” Sergeant Geoff Fox said. Police could not really communicate with him in terms of a constructive conversation,” Fox said.

Fox said that the man had broken a window of the school, but had not stolen anything. He said the man was holding a piece of his own private part, which apparently he had ripped off.

The man, along with his cut off private part were taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Superior Township.
Fox said the man had been near death.

“In terms of vital signs, they were as low as they could go before being dead. We could only assume this happened due to blood loss, shock and trauma to the body,” he said.

Fox said the man had a history of mental health and drug problems. He said the man apparently consumed hallucinogenic mushrooms before the incident.

“We have sent his blood out for further analysis to see if there was something else, if the mushrooms could have been laced with something else,” Fox said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
