A man who stuck his penis in a dumbbell weight spent three hours surrounded by firefighters who sliced him free with power tools.
Angle grinders, a saw and a hydraulic rescue tool usually used to prize crash victims from vehicle wreckage were used to smash the 2.5kg disc on Friday.
This was after doctors were unable to remove the weight following the mishap at a gym in Worms, Germany.
The weight was removed from the man’s penis in a three-hour procedure involving angle grinders, a saw and a hydraulic rescue tool
The victim had to be sedated as firefighters from the city of Worms smashed the weight to free his penis, according to Metro.
Firefighters shared a picture of the smashed weight on social media with some helpful advice for anybody tempted to squeeze their manhood into tight spots, saying: ‘Please do not imitate such actions!’
