The video of the horrific incident is going viral on social media.

Speaking to Channel 7, Attaporn Boonmakchuay narrated the entire incident that how the python suddenly appeared and latched its jaws onto his penis.

“It took about a minute for the neighbour to get here. And all of a sudden, while I was holding it, it began to lose some strength so I used my hand to prise open its mouth. Then the snake released its grip by itself,” Boonmakchuay was quoted as saying. He fainted due to loss of blood and was rushed to the hospital where he got stitches and recovering.

Since the python twined through the Asian-style squat toilet of Attaporn, emergency workers had to dismantle it. The snake was taken away to be released back into the wild. Watch the video of the incident below:
