A man is in critical condition after accidentally cutting off his own penis during work, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Gloucester police said that they have launched an investigation after the man, who was not identified, suffered a work-related injury at a factory.

The incident unfolded on Monday, at around 3:30 p.m., in Moreton Valence.

The man was working with an electric saw when he accidentally cut off his own penis.

The victim’s colleagues called for help after seeing a lot of blood on his pants.

The man was rushed to the Southmeads Hospital in Bristol, where he underwent emergency surgery.

It took doctors 8 hours to complete the surgery.

He remains in critical condition.

Investigators said that this was not a criminal matter and referred the case to the Health and Safety Executive, which investigates workplace accidents.
