Man's penis removed from pipe

A man who went to casualty with his penis stuck in a steel pipe had to be cut free by firefighters using a metal grinder.

Medics at Southampton General Hospital could not get the man's penis out of the stainless steel pipe because the restricted blood flow had caused it to become aroused.

So they called in Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.

They turned up with a special equipment unit from St Mary's station in Southampton and seven firefighters to help in what a spokesman said was a ''delicate operation''.

The firefighters used the four-and-a-half-inch grinder to cut the pipe from around the man's penis and it took about 30 minutes.

The patient was given an anaesthetic and his penis was left bruised and swollen but otherwise unharmed.

The anxious man aged about 40 gave hospital staff no explanation about how the pipe got stuck after he turned up on Tuesday morning.

A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: ''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.''


Either that, or he walked in to it with his trousers down!:)))

As the wifey says "it could have been a bleeder"! :-American Pie

The firefighters used the four-and-a-half-inch grinder.....'

I'm sure it was much bigger than that :w00t:

Reminds me of that old joke.......

A bloke is struggling to reverse hs car into a tight space. His wife gets out and says, " You've still got about 9 inches more room behind".

The guy edges back just 4 or 5 inches and crunch! He hits the car behind. He jumps out and shouts at his wife..... "You idiot, that gap was never 9 inches, it was half that!" She looks him straight in the eyes and says, gesticulating with her forefinger and thumb to estimate the size "You always told me that was 9 inches!"

I'll get my coat. >:)
