This is the eye-watering moment a man had to be rescued after falling onto metal railings and impaling himself through the GROIN.
Patirat Punudom, 35, finished showering at 2am on Friday morning and climbed onto the second floor balcony ledge to hang his towel on a washing line.
With one foot standing on the top of the railings, he slipped and fell onto his groin – screaming in pain as a meal spike impaled him.
The metal tip narrowly missed his manhood – and went seven-inches inside deep – even pressing against inside of his tummy.
Neighbours in Pathum Thani, cenral Thailand, heard Patirat calling for help and called rescue workers who cut the railings away to free him.
They said the spike narrowly avoided rupturing vital organs and causing almost certain death.
A spokesman for the Ruamkatanyu Foundation said: ”Neighbours in the village heard the Mr Patirat calling for help. We arrived just after 2am and cut the railings away to free him.
”He almost died. The spike nearly hit important arteries. He could have been bleeding to death.
”His father said Mr Patirat had just finished taking a shower and had climbed on the railings to hang up his towel. He does it that way every night but slipped this time.”
