Man accidentally cuts off own penis

A 54-year-old carpenter in Wantage, England, accidentally cut off his own penis while working with a saw, his mother says.

Stuart Keen's mother, Edna, told The Sunday Telegraph her son had been cutting wood for a cabinet when the saw inflicted the horrific injury. Surgeons were able to reattach the severed appendage, she said.

Stuart is a carpenter and uses sharp and sometimes dangerous tools, Keen's mother said.

This was an unfortunate accident but these things happen all the time to people in his profession.

A South Central Ambulance Service spokesman said paramedics found him bleeding in his bathtub.

I have spoken to him and he is quite embarrassed about the whole incident, Keen's mother told the Telegraph.
