A former marine has told about the cruel moment he realized his wife had cut off her penis with a kitchen knife.
John Wayne Bobbitt, 51, remembered the live "nightmare" when he woke up to find himself in the blood after the brutal attack.
He said, "It was a nightmare. I cleared my mind, used pressure.
"I went to wake my friend to tell him to take me to the hospital."
Bobbitt had her sister savaged by wife Lorena in 1993 after accusing him of a campaign of physical and sexual abuse against her.
She fled the scene in Manassas, Virginia, with her husband's cut penis – before throwing it into a field from the car's window.
When he spoke to ABC 20/20 for a new special report on the matter for 25 years, Bobbitt explained how doctors first thought he could have cut his wrists when he was covered with so much blood.
He said, "Go into the hospital, the doctor is – you know – look at me (and say)" show me your wrist ".
But when he revealed his injury, the doctors' "jaw" went.
Cops had managed to find the discarded organ and placed it in a sausage container with ice before rushing to the hospital.
Urologist Dr James Sehn was called in to perform emergency surgery to reattach it.
Considering the show, Dr Sehn said: "Actually, all I knew about this on the way to the hospital was that a penis had been amputated and the organ was missing."
Surgeons performed a careful 9-hour operation and miraculously managed to sew Mr. Bobbit's penis back into place.
Ex-soldier Mr Bobbitt would so famously go to the star of several porn movies to prove he was back to full health.
He added, "It's normal now.
"I don't want to mess with it … it's been through wringer."
Lorena, who is now following her maiden name Gallo, now runs a domestic violence.
She was cleared of criminal liability due to temporary madness and earned 45 days in a mental institution.

Talking about the attack in an interview with Vanity Fair in August, Lorena said: "I didn't want to teach him a lesson.
"No, it was survival. Life and death. I was afraid of my life."
Bobbitt told ABC, "I couldn't believe it, how could anyone get away from it?"
In a separate trial, Bobbitt was cleaned to violate Lorena.
