A man has sliced off his penis with a razor blade following a row with his girlfriend.
The bagel seller, identified only by his initials HB, was captured on CCTV in Yenisehir District in Mersin, Turkey, whipping off his trousers and taking a blade to his manhood in a busy street after a fight over the phone with his lover.
Although the strange act appeared grainy on the footage, onlookers claimed the man thrashed at his genitals until it was cut into pieces, according to the Daily Star newspaper.
A policeman managed to restrained the agitated man and he was rushed to hospital to have his penis reattached.
Surgeons at Mersin University Medical Faculty Hospital managed to stitch the organ back on but warned it was badly damaged and may not be able to fulfil its purpose.
