I love the British press.
From the Sun (UK):
A MAN had to have his penis cut free by SEVEN firefighters after he got it stuck in a steel PIPE.
The crew used a METAL GRINDER for the delicate 30-minute operation, after doctors at Southampton General Hospital tried to release him without success.
The medics failed because the restricted blood flow had caused the man to become aroused.
A crew from the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service used the four-and-a-half-inch grinder to cut the pipe free on Tuesday morning.
Afterwards, the patient was given an anaesthetic and although his willy was left bruised and swollen it was otherwise unharmed.
The anxious man aged about 40 failed to explain how the pipe had become stuck.
A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said today: “Initially the crew did not have the appropriate cutting equipment to free the man.
“It was a very delicate operation that required a very steady hand and the crew was worried about things getting too hot during the cutting.
“It’s certainly an unusual call-out and I’m sure the man won’t be getting into that situation again.”
It rather reminds me of the guy last year who panicked and needed his own chastity device cut off by the local fire department.
What is it with you crazy kids across the pond, that you keep needing to be cut out of things like this?
