However, the boy’s dad, Diego Rangel Izaguirre, started to grow suspicious after he was denied access to the child for more than two hours after he was born.
Staff at the hospital in Saltillo, Mexico, told the father that the boy had had a “minor accident” -- but he soon discovered the truth.
Fortunately the organ was successfully sewn back together -- but the baby suffered three more cuts during surgery.
His parents made an official complaint to the hospital but officials insist the baby is healthy and that the operation was both minor and consented to by the parents. The hospital has launched an internal investigation.
