Turkish man cuts off his own penis after separating from partner
SİVASA man in an eastern Turkish province has cut off his penis and thrown it into a creek after failing to persuade his estranged partner to return to their home, Doğan News Agency has reported.
The 73-year-old father of six, who was identified only by the initials T.Ö., reportedly had a nervous breakdown when he learned his partner would not return from Istanbul to their home in Kızıltaş, a village in Sivas province. He then cut off his penis and threw it into the local Derebağ creek.
Villagers took the man, who survived the incident, to hospital but his penis could not be found in the creek.
The woman had reportedly traveled to Istanbul for treatment on her foot a year ago and refused the man’s insistent demands that she return to Sivas.
