A boy from England almost lost his testicles after recently falling victim to a trending prank at school
According to The Sun UK, 12-year-old Bailey Summers had to undergo an emergency surgery to save his testicles.
On Thursday, 19 September, he was approached by a group of boys at his school with the question, "What is the capital city of Thailand?"
When he answered 'Bangkok', he was punched in the crotch.
Bailey's mother had to sign a consent form allowing doctors to remove his testicles if they needed to
According to Mirror UK, doctors initially sent Bailey home with paracetamol, but his mother rushed him to the hospital the next day after discovering he was unable to sit down or sleep at home.
Upon inspection, doctors at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough hurriedly prepared the boy for surgery.
His mother claimed that the medics did not have enough time to give him the right anaesthetics or numbing cream.
"My son was crying, screaming, and begging me to help him. It was a nightmare to see him so petrified and in so much pain. It was heartbreaking," she said.
Luckily, doctors were able to save both of his testicles.
Bailey is now required to use a wheelchair for two weeks and must refrain from strenuous activity for up to six weeks.
