Dad chops son's hand off in fight over banana
Father goes Bananas.
In my day we used to just get the Belt when you made Dad mad.....
A Papua New Guinean father has lopped off his son's hand when a family fight erupted over a bunch of bananas.
The Southern Highlands (SHP) family have since sent the severed hand back to their village for burial, while the 20-year old recovers in the Mendi General Hospital.
Moson Wape, from Seven Kona in the Kagua district SHP, had his lower left hand cut off after his father tried to slash him on the head, PNG's National newspaper reports.
The incident occurred on the weekend when Wape intervened in a fight between his father and another son arguing over a bunch of bananas.
The father swung his bush knife and chopped off Wape's hand and also slashed his head.
Police are investigating.
This is a parenting tactic I never considered.... But wouldn't you want to encourage fruit and veg and chop hands off for junk food instead ?
