Man in hospital has penis eaten by rats

An Indian man who died in a state-run hospital is alleged to have had his penis chewed off by rats,Asian Age newspaper reports.

Arun Sandhukha, 53, had been a pneumonia patient at SSKM Hospital in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) since December 11. According to the newspaper, his family members arrived at the hospital for a visit and found him in a pool of blood, with no medical staff in sight.

“No nurse was found at the scene and he was writhing in pain. His penis had been nibbled by rats,” a victim’s relative identified as Bishwanath said. The relative said that hospital staff “admitted the presence of rats in the hospital.”

Later in the day, Sandhukha was pronounced dead. (Asian Age published its story on December 24, but it is not clear on what day the incident occurred.)

    Why would health insurance keep this from happening to you? This happened at a hospital where he was receiving treatment health insurance would, if anything, make this more possible seeing as you would be entitled to treatment and have access to a hospital where you could have your penis chewed off lol.

  2. That reminds me, i need to get medical insurance so this deoes not happen to me!!! 🙂
