Darwin Man’s Penis Turns Black After Operation

Why is that so many strange incidents seem to happen in Darwin?:

A MAN says he could have died after an operation left him bleeding heavily and turned his penis black.

Michael Eglington, 53, went to Royal Darwin Hospital last Tuesday to have a wart removed from the base of his penis, The Northern Territory News reports.

He said he collapsed from blood loss as he rushed back to the hospital less than an hour after being discharged.

“Why did they let me go?” he said. “I could have passed out while I was driving.”

The internal bleeding caused his penis and testicles to turn black – and his testicles swelled to more than three times their normal size.

I can live without seeing the pictures, thank you, however I do have to wonder why did this guy want his story and picture shown all over the Australian news?
