A Romanian woman tore off her husband's left testicle after he failed to give her flowers on International Women's Day and then refused to help with the housework. Ionel Popa, 39, from Vaslui County, was rushed to hospital after his wife Marinela Benea, 40 tore open his scrotum during a violent argument.
The mother-of-one grabbed hold of her husband's testicles and pulled violently during the argument, leaving Popa's left testicle hanging out of his scrotum after the skin was ripped apart.
Paramedic Aurora Popa said: "The man had a severe open wound on his scrotum. He told us his wife had attacked him because he did not give her flowers for International Woman's Day."
Following the incident, Benea showed little remorse for the attack adding that her husband deserved what had happened to him after he came home drunk and shouted at her. She explained: "Ionel had been given a bottle of wine for a day's work instead of getting paid, and had arrived home drunk. When he gets drunk, he changes. All night he made me keep the fire on because he was cold and I did it to avoid having an argument.
"In the morning I opened the curtains and told him to go out and do some work, or at least to help with the household chores but he shouted that I'm not entitled to give him orders. I told him he was not any kind of man and I grabbed his testicles," she explained.
"It was not my fault that he pulled away, and that's when it happened. I thought maybe that some ice would solve the problem, but he insisted on calling an ambulance. He was pretty annoyed."
According to Mail Online Popa was forced to undergo emergency surgery to repair the damage to his testicles and remains in a stable condition. The couple have been together for 15 years and have a 15-year-old son. The attack is currently being investigated by police.
