Seven firefighters from St. Mary´s station in Southampton had to come to the rescue of a 40-year-old man who showed up at the hospital with his penis stuck inside a metal pipe.
Fire fighters arrived with a special apparatus to free the pipe from his appendage. They used a metal grinder after the man was put under anesthesia to prevent pain from the grinding heat.
Unknown to the hospital is how and why did he got his penis inside a pipe. It was the restriction of blood flow that got the penis stuck after an erection. "I´m sure the man won´t be getting into that situation again" said a spokesman for the firefighters.
