At 11:30am on Sunday (July 17) Thalang Police recieved a call from Thalang Hospital's Emergency Room to notify them that a 17-year-old Myanmar national had been admitted with a deep gash on his penis.
The patient, who was named as "Mr Few" (or "Mr Feel" depending on transilteration variations; in Thai, นายฟิว), was reported to be conscious and responsive albeit in excrutiating pain, bleeding steadily from his groin area when doctor's examined him.
A "good samaritan", who was not named, and had reportedly brought the young man to hospital in the back of his pickup truck, told hospital staff that he had looked after the shrimp farm in Ban Yamu of Thalang's Paklok sub district where the accident took place.
According to the man, Mr Few was a laborer who had been visiting friends as it was his day off and was swimming in the pond when the accident took placed.
Upon realizing what had happened after hearing loud screams, the man said he then rushed Mr Few to hospital.
Police are investigating claims, while doctors have yet to comment on Mr Few's long-term prognosis.
