The nipper’s dad Diego Rangel Izaguirre grew suspicious when he was denied access to his son for more than two hours after his birth.Hospital staff in Saltillo, Mexico, assured Diego his son had suffered a minor injury – and was understandably livid when he discovered the truth.

Even when surgeons were trying to fix the boy’s penis, they caused further damage.He said: “When my child was born and they cut his umbilical cord they injured his penis.“And unfortunately when the surgeon started sewing it, he made other two new injuries, almost two centimetres deep.”

In the end, the incompetent trainees sewed the baby’s penis back together – but his mum Zulem Contreras is still furious, insisting her child should have been treated by professionals.
