Man cuts off, eats own penis
Zamboanga City, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines -- A man ended up in a southern Philippines hospital Monday after severing and then eating his own penis, hospital officials said.
Ernesto Almonte, 40, was in stable condition at the Zamboanga City Medical Center, emergency room staff told Agence France-Presse.
They could not confirm a report by local radio station DXRG that the bizarre act was triggered by an erectile dysfunction problem.
Asked about the patient's mental state, one staff member said: "If you cut your sex organ and then eat it, then something is wrong with you."
