German firefighters in the city of Worms were called to the hospital late last week to extract a man’s private part from the center of a gym dumbbell, where it had become jammed.
The Worms fire department posted a photo of the dumbbell to Facebook, which it took them three hours to cut into five pieces using a grinder.
Wrote the department:
Strange accident – help for the hospital
Our headquarters received a distress call of a different type on Friday morning, and we were called to the hospital. A man had a very sensitive part of his body trapped in the hole of a 2.5 kg dumbell. Using a grinder, a saw, and emergency hydraulics, the weight was removed in three hours.
The fire department said it posted the photo as a warning to others: “Please do not imitate such actions!”
