This is horrific. A boy in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China had his penis bitten off by his possibly deranged father. Doctors were able to reattach the boy’s penis, but it is not clear if he will be fully functional when he grows up. He is likely going to need long-term psychological care.
The father, who is 32, was walking with the boy and his four-year-old sister. All three were naked. When the man asked the boy to bite his, that is the father’s, penis, the boy refused. The father than attacked his son. People rushed to help the boy, but it was already too late. Blood was gushing out of the boy’s crotch where his penis had once been. The people who helped the boy pinned the father to the ground and retrieved the boy’s penis from the shrubs that the father had thrown it into.
Police took the father into custody while the boy was rushed to the hospital. The girl went with relatives later. According to Shanghai Daily “The divorced father lived with his children in a rented room about 500 meters away from the site of attack. Neighbors said he used to treat his children well until this year when he looked abnormal.”
The man is unemployed and heavily in debt. He is currently in the hospital for treatment. Incidents have been reported of him pretending to strangle his son on the balcony.
The only name known for them is that their surname is Yu.
