In a shocking incident, a gym goer’s penis got stuck and swollen through a tiny hole of a dumbbell weight.
The unnamed fitness fan arrived at a hospital in Worms. Germany, red faced and with a purple penis, prompting medics to call the fire brigade to help with the unusual penile injury.
The man, was apparently in agonising pain as firemen spent three hours trying to remove the weight from around his penis.
Firefighters managed to shatter the 2.5 kilo weight using a grinder and vibrating saw.
While an image of the man’s swollen manhood was taken for official use, it spread around the internet after being leaked on social media.
Furious hospital bosses have organised an investigation into the ‘data leak’ which has exposed the man’s horrifying injury.
Post the ground-breaking operation, the fire brigade shared an image of the broken disk online, describing it as a "curious training accident".
A spokesman for the fire brigade said, “How delicate some of our fire fighters can be was shown when we called in support of the hospital. One person had a very sensitive body part wedged in the hole of a 2.5 kg dumbbell disc.”
He went on to add that the dumbbell weight could be removed after three hours with the help of a grinder, a vibration saw and a hydraulic rescue device.
