Thai man pulls 6.5ft long tapeworm out of his bottom


This is the stomach-churning moment a man pulled a 6.5ft-long tapeworm out from his bottom.

Nursing student Sarawut Sukhom 19 said he was at the toilet when he found a strange object dangling near his bottom in Ubon Ratchathani province, northeastern Thailand on May 9 morning.

He said: ‘I felt like I’m not done with the toilet yet when I’ve been sitting for ten minutes. I was shocked when I looked down.’

After spotting the strange creature he continued to pull it out from his body with his right hand. Sarawut later realised he’s been feeding the tapeworm for months.

Terrified Sarawut took a short video of the parasitic worm before flushing it into the toilet.

He said: ‘I used to feel sick in the morning. I feel hungry even after eating a lot of food and I couldn’t gain weight. Seeing the tapeworm come out explains everything.

Sarawut believed that the tapeworm entered his body after eating raw Thai dishes. He went to the doctor afterwards to have himself checked.
