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.

I read a slightly extended account of this event, which included a few comments from the fireman entrusted with wielding the angle-grinder.  Apparently, he was very good at tricky and delicate work, and that an important factor in the 'operation' was ensuring that not too much heat was built up during the process.

If it was an exhaust pipe the operation could almost be described as a decoke. [:)]

Could have been a vacuum cleaner pipe.

I'm quite interested in the seven firemen and a 4 and a half inch grinder. Do you have their phone numbers?

How close did the guy get to winning a Darwin award?
(BTW, I'm sure there should be a joke about an organ grinder here somewhere.)

The "organ grinder" was the last straw.

Ironically, if you read the Telegraph article about it (cited above) the ads at the bototm of the page invite you to "become an organ donor..." oops.

I liked the bicyclist reply as they opened the door.
"What is it then?" and then he kept on...

As they say, some things are just to important to interrupt..
