A prison inmate was rushed to a hospital after cutting off his own manhood and flushing it down the toilet, prison officials in the United Kingdom said.
The 40-year-old man, who was not identified, was found bleeding and unconscious by prison guards in Bristol.
The guards managed to stop the bleeding before rushing him to the hospital. The incident occurred around 10:00 a.m. on Friday.
Investigators believe that the injury was self-inflicted and no other prisoners were involved.
In July, an intoxicated and injured man was rushed to a hospital after he tried to commit suicide by cutting off his manhood, police in China said.
The 41-year-old man identified as Chan, cut off part of his penis while heavily intoxicated because his life became too difficult after his wife divorced him.
The incident took place in Guangzhou on Friday. Chan was found by passersby on the side of a river and was immediately taken to the hospital.
Doctors only treated his wounds because his manhood was lost in the river.
