A man is in hospital and trying to raise funds for surgery after accidentally cutting his own testicles off while sleeping.

Ghanaian farmer Kofi Atta, 47, dozed off in an armchair and said he managed to pick up a knife and injure himself whilst dreaming about cutting meat.

Still in a dream-like state, he called for two neighbours who rushed to his house and found him alone, covered in blood.

Speaking to BBC Pidgin he said: "I was sitting in my chair when I dozed off. In my sleep I dreamt that I was cutting some meat in front of me.

"I don’t remember how I picked up the knife, even I am confused."

He explained that he was still unsure of what had happened when his neighbours arrived, although he stood up and felt a sharp pain in his genitals.

Perhaps as a result of the loss of blood, Kofi only came out of the dream state when in hospital. That's when he realised he hadn't been chopping up food for a family meal, but rather his own testicles.

Doctors treated his gruesome wounds earlier this month but have told him he needs to undergo surgery in order to make a full recovery.

He is currently trying to raise funds from well-wishers so that he can afford to have the procedure at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
