A patient killed himself after a botched penis enlargement procedure.
Nai Saw, 42, claimed doctors had refused to fix the operation in Thailand after it went wrong.
By the time they finally called for an appointment, he had tragically taken his own life.
His body was found in the country’s Nonthaburi province on Thursday.
The Burmese migrant, a chef at a restaurant, was left devastated after his penis swelled up following an enhancement procedure last week.
His friend, Apichat Chantha said the medics would not tend to him right away.
The 30-year-old said they blamed coronavirus restrictions, which left his pal “very depressed”.
He added: “He went to enlarge his penis a week ago but it became inflamed and swelled.
“The hospital was not able to treat him due to the Covid-19 situation and he became very depressed about it.”
They later tried to call him, but it was too late.
After the patient failed to answer his phone, his concerned friend went to look for him and discovered his body.
