A bloke died cutting the grass as a strimmer blade flew off and severed his penis, causing severe blood loss, it has been reported.
The Thai man had been tending to a patch of grass at a forest park in the Isaan province of Nong Bua Lamphu when the freak accident happened, Thaiger reported.
The blade, police said, was actually meant for cutting metal, and not grass, probably making his injuries a lot worse. It was covered in blood when retrieved from the scene.
The rescue team removed the victim’s trousers to determine the cause of death, finding that his manhood had been severed and that he also sustained a deep wound to his groin.
It transpired that Praditsin had been hired to tend to the grass in the forest park and the day of his death, June 28, was supposed to be his last day.
