Man Rips Out His Own Eyeballs During Church Service

HUFFINGTON POST - A 46-year-old man who told doctors he was hearing voices reportedly ripped out his own eyeballs during a Sunday church service in northern Italy, The Sun reports.

According to The Daily Mail, Aldo Bianchini, who was born in the UK but spent most of his life in Italy, used his bare hands to tear out his eyeballs just as Rev. Lorenzo Tanganelli began conducting Mass. He then collapsed on the floor in a pool of his own blood.

NBC Bay Area translated comments Rev. Tanganelli gave Corriere Fiorentino, an Italian newspaper.

"This man at the back of the nave started tearing at his face and I realized he was gouging out his eyes," Tanganelli told the paper. "I called for assistance and the paramedics were quickly at the scene, and he was taken away and then I carried on celebrating Mass, but a lot of people had left because they were so shocked by what they had seen."

Bianchini was taken to the hospital for treatment, but doctors say he will never be able to see again.

"In 26 years of practicing medicine, I have never seen anything like it," Dr. Gino Barbacci, the emergency physician who treated Bianchini, told the Italian-language news site Bresciaoggi.it, according to a HuffPost translation.
