A prisoner in Thailand managed to break out of jail with the help of his penis enlargement, which went horribly wrong.
Thanaphat Mayod, 37, was admitted to the Bang Lamung Hospital when his genitals swelled due to his infected penis enlargement injections.
Despite the severe swelling, Thanaphat managed to hatch a daring escape plan from the hospital with the help of his wife.
Wife Wasana Kuaysuwan, 30, smuggled in a pair of steel cutters and used the tool to break the restraints chaining him to the hospital bed.
Even as a catheter was still attached to his penis, he escaped his room before hobbling through the hospital corridors and taking a lift to the ground floor, where he escaped through a window.
However, Thanaphat’s freedom was short-lived as he was found by police 28 hours later, hiding on the rooftop of the hospital’s psychiatric ward – just 20 metres away from where he was staying as a patient.
He was taken to the emergency room in a poor condition, with agonising pain coming from his manhood, where silicone filler had been injected.

The runaway patient told authorities he was driven to commit the jailbreak ‘because he missed his family.’
He said: ‘I had the penis enlargement operation before I went to jail. It became infected because I couldn’t care for it.
‘I just saw the opportunity to escape from the hospital because I wanted to see my wife again.’
Thanaphat allegedly admitted to borrowing another patient’s phone to tell his wife to bring the steel cutters.
Officials said Thanaphat will be charged for attempting to escape prison, while his wife Wasana has been detained for helping an inmate escape.
Meanwhile, Sahakarn Petchanarin, director-general of Thailand’s Department of Corrections, said: ‘A committee has been created to examine the facts. We will investigate how the prisoner was able to escape.
‘As for the two guards guarding the prisoner, they are also being investigated and we expect the results to come out soon. The work of both men continues normally until the results are released.’
Earlier this week, a cosmetic clinic launched £3,000 ‘penis fillers’ just in time for grey sweatpant season.
