Giant Python Sinks Fangs Into Man Sitting on Toilet

CHACHOENAGSAO, Thailand — Most guys would brag about having a python between their legs, but not this guy in Thailand. Atthaporn Boonmakchuay is too busy recovering from a terrifying ordeal involving an 11-foot snake that swam up through the toilet he was sitting on in his home, east of Bangkok. The python sank its fangs into his penis!

Wait. It gets worse.

The 11-foot snake would not let go. Boonmakchuay’s bloody penis was being held hostage by a giant serpent.

According to, Boonmakchuay called for his wife to get a rope and managed to tie the python’s head to the bathroom door so he could detach himself “before he passed out from loss of blood,” the site wrote. Boonmakchuay’s wife, Sawittree Shooyoung, tells Thairath that when she entered the bathroom, she saw her bleeding husband fighting a python. She watched as he tied the snake to the door and wrangled himself free before losing consciousness.

Boonmakchuay, 38, is hospitalized in stable condition, according to the site, and has full memory of the bizarre event. He told reporters he carefully unhinged the snake’s jaws rather than forcing the snake free — because he “did not want to risk permanent damage to his self,” the site wrote.

Smart man.

As for the snake, rescue workers dismantled the toilet and were able to take the snake from the home alive — still stuck in the toilet pipe — and were able to smash enough of the fixture to free the snake, which is expected to be released into the wild.
