A Newry man slit two of his balls open and managed to hack off the superior part of his penis as he was attempting to shave his genitals while heavily intoxicated by alcohol.

Luckily he was found unconscious by his friend minutes later and was carried away by ambulance to the Daisy Hill Hospital where doctors proceeded to sow back his genitals that were left in a “heavily damaged state”, admit doctors.

The man was preparing to go out on a date at the time and admits he should’ve proceeded to shave himself in a “sober state” and believes he is “lucky to be alive”.

He told Newry Spud from Daisy Hill Hospital:

“The doctor said I am lucky to be alive. I lost a quarter of my blood, it would’ve been a really stupid way to die. Usually, I use a mirror, but I was piss drunk and couldn’t find it, so I tried shaving, but couldn’t see shite”.
