There are many ways to get back at your cheating partner. It is considered by many that the best way is to leave them and live your best life without all that toxicity. We wish this woman had done the same but she took things a little too far by cutting her husband's genitals and then attempting suicide, reported the Daily Mail.
Apparently, the woman had seduced her ex-husband before cutting off his manhood. To ensure there is no way of retrieving them she doused them in acid and flushed them down the toilet. The woman had found out that he had cheated on her which led her to take up such a drastic step. The police reported that the woman, Ms Lee, 58, used a sharp pair of scissors for the deed, leaving him with just 1 centimetre (0.4 inches) of manhood. "If I can't have it, no one else can", she apparently told him before continuing with the horrific act. Lee had planned her own death after the same. She was found unconscious after taking 40 sleeping pills in a failed suicide attempt. The attack happened in the couple's home in the township of Hukou, which is in Taiwan's north-western county of Hsinchu. Local reports say that the couple had divorced less than a month ago and that Mr. Chen had been jobless for two years, living off his wife's income.
Authorities had received a call from a 'howling Mr. Chen' who was in immense pain. He explained to them that he feared more violence from his ex-wife and had locked himself in the toilet. They further said they have not been able to retrieve the man's parts. They also reported that Ms. Lee was unconscious when she was found after her suicide attempt didn't work out as she had planned. Both she and her ex-husband were taken to National Taiwan University Hospital Zhudong Branch.
The hospital's head of urology Chang Chen-yeh said they would not have been able to reattach Mr. Chen's genitals even if the police had found it as they would have been contaminated with bacteria, and in any case, the chances of him ever regaining sexual function were 'extremely low'. Neighbors living next to the couple said they have no children and often argued.
