Malaysian boy loses penis to botched circumcision
A 9-year-old boy in Kuala Lumpur had to have his penis amputated after his circumcision went wrong. The incident happened at a private clinic in Jalan Ipoh.
On December 15th, medical practitioners accidentally cut off the head of the boy’s penis with a pair of scissors. His family later rushed him to Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) to save his genitals but his penis had to be amputated when it turned black after almost a week.
An NGO, Ikatan Rakyat Insan Muslim Malaysia, have reached out to help the family of the boy for his treatment, reports Malay Mail Online.
