A man claims he accidentally chopped off his own testicles while dreaming that he was cutting meat for a family meal.
Kofi Atta, a farmer in Ghana, suffered critical injuries after taking a knife to his scrotum while he was half asleep.
Atta claims he woke up “to see his penis chopped off” after dreaming he was dreaming about slaughtering a goat.
He awoke in shock at his Assin Fosum home on August 12 after feeling sharp pains coming from his penis and scrotum, according to GHOne TV.
The man told BBC Pidgin he’s currently receiving medical care in hospital but says it looks like he will need surgery.
He says he needs money to get to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) for the operation.
Atta says he’s still unsure how he came to be holding a knife, after dosing off in a chair, ABC News reports.
His wife, Adwoa Konadu, was travelling at the time and was contacted by neighbours, reports claim.
She came home to find him bleeding and holding his penis and rushed to get him a diaper to reduce blood flow.
He was rushed to hospital with serious but non life-threatening injuries.
His claims follow reports of a man who deliberately cut off his penis.
Doctors revealed he was able to get it reattached and still achieve an erection just six weeks after surgery.
The 34-year-old from Birmingham had his member reattached just 24 hours after chopping it off with a kitchen knife.
