      Man gouges his eyes out in church

      A man gouged out his own eyes during mass at a church in northwestern Italy.

      Aldo Bianchini, 46, who was born in Britain but lives in Italy, tore both his eyes out with his bare hands in front of a 300-strong congregation attending the church of St. Andrea's in Viareggio, on Sunday.

      Bianchini was reportedly calm and lucid when paramedics arrived at the scene.

      According to the Ansa news agency, he told them that a "voice" told him to rip his eyes out.

      He was taken to the Versilia Hospital in Viareggio and his condition was described as very serious but not life threatening.

      Paramedics picked up his eyeballs from the floor of the church but they were unable to be replanted.

      Dr Gino Barbacci who treated Bianchini, said it would have taken superhuman strength for a person to gouge their own eyes out.

      He said he had never seen anything like it in 26 years of medical practice.

      Father Lorenzo Tanganelli, who continued the service after the incident, said: "I've never seen so much blood."

      Bianchini was reported to have suffered from psychological problems in the past.

      "Psychological problems" is an understatement.

      Having thought about it long and hard I think I'd probably rather cut my own penis off.
