Man's penis 'freed from steel pipe'
Firefighters in Hampshire have assisted medical staff in freeing a man's penis after it got stuck in a metal pipe.
The man, aged around 40, gave no explanation to as to how his member became trapped when he went to Southampton General Hospital on Tuesday, PA reports.
Staff were unable to remove the aroused penis from the stainless steel pipe and called the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.
A fire 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."
He added: "It's certainly an unusual call-out and I'm sure the man won't be getting into that situation again."
A four-and-a-half inch grinder was eventually used to cut the pipe from around the penis in a procedure that took around 30 minutes.
