Workout gone wrong: Man gets penis trapped in iron weight

What do you get when you add gym weights to male genitals?

A man who stuck his penis in a dumbbell weight spent three hours surrounded by firefighters who sliced him free with power tools.

While it isn't known what exercise landed the man in such a weird situation, a Facebook post advised people to steer clear of such acts.

Eventually, he had to be sedated as firefighters using angle grinders, a saw and a hydraulic rescue device broke the weight to finally release the penis.

The fire brigade was on Friday called to a hospital in the city of Worms, Germany, after doctors were unable to free the man's penis from the plate.


Pictures from the scene show the weight had to be shattered into five separate pieces to enable the tricky rescue.

They also posted a photo of the weight, after it had been broken, of course.

The emergency surgery took eight hours to complete.

The firefighters later shared the tale on the department's Facebook page, with the warning: " Please do not imitate such actions!".
