Penis skinned in shrimp farm accident

PHUKET: A teenage shrimp farm employee had the skin of his penis ripped clean off when he fell onto a spinning mechanical aerator used to oxygenate the water.

The victim, a Myanmar national aged 17, suffered severe blood loss.

“He was writhing in agony and covered in blood as locals rushed him to Thalang Hospital. He was later moved to Vachira Phuket Hospital,” said Capt Suporn Muangkai of the Thalang police.

“It turns out it was actually the boy’s day off, but he was helping a colleague plaster a wall at the farm when he fell onto the aerator,” said Capt Suporn.

Doctors could not say at this stage whether the victim will regain full functionality of the organ or not.
