A man in Thailand suffered huge blood loss after a python sank its fangs into his joystick while he was sitting on the toilet.
Atthaporn Boonmakchuay, 38 tried desperately to break free after the huge snake attacked in the bathroom of his home in Chachoengsao, east of the capital Bangkok.
The 38-year-old reportedly reached down with his hand after feeling a sharp bite only to discover the serpent’s jaws clamped around the tip of his joystick.
Atthaporn screamed out for his wife as he thrashed around trying to dislodge the 11ft python.
Moments before collapsing, he managed to tie rope around the snake’s head and tie it to the bathroom door.
But he was rushed to hospital after suffering horrific blood loss in the ordeal.
