John Wayne Bobbitt remembers trying to stay calm at the moment that he realized that his then-wife Lorena Bobbitt cut off his penis with a kitchen knife in 1993.

That year, on the morning of June 23, Bobbitt said his wife cut out his appendix, and fled their Manassas, Virginia, apartment.

Bobbitt recalled the incident for the ABC News “20/20” special with the title “The Bobbitts: the Love Hurts,” which is slated to air on Jan. 4. An example of the fragment of the show was released Thursday.

Bobbitt said his friend was screaming and “going crazy” when he saw all the blood, but was able to drive him in the vicinity of Prince William Hospital in about 10 minutes.

Doctors initially asked to see Bobbitt’s wrists to see if the blood was from a cut.
