After accidently severing his own testicles while dozing off, a man is now undergoing surgery in the hospital.
Farmer Kofi Atta of Ghana, 47, also known as Wofa Atta, fell asleep in a chair and claimed he picked up a knife while dreaming of butchering meat.
The farmer from Assin Akomfede, who was still in a dream-like state, phoned for two neighbors, who came running to his house and discovered him alone and covered in blood.
The St. Francis Xavier hospital in Assin Fosu received him right away. When he spoke to BBC Pidgin, he said: “I was sitting in my chair when I dozed off. In my sleep, I dreamt that I was cutting some meat in front of me.
“I don’t remember how I picked up the knife, even I am confused.”
When his neighbors showed over, he stated that although he got up and felt a strong pain in his genitals, he was still confused of what had occurred.
Perhaps as a result of the blood loss, Kofi only awoke from his dreams while being treated in a hospital. At that point, he realized he had actually been slicing his own testicles rather than meat for a family lunch.
Adwoa Konadu, the victim’s wife, revealed that her husband had engaged in such behavior while sleeping before the most recent occurrence.
She claimed that he frequently moves, talks, and argues while he is sleeping. In one of these incidents, Wofa Atta ended up injuring his genitalia.
