This Just In (and Out) from Worms, Germany — The Report of a Dumbbell Plate and a Penis

Firefighters in Worms, Germany responded Friday morning September 15, 2017 to a report of a man who arrived at a hospital and needed rescue because his penis was stuck in a 2.5 kg dumbbell disc.

Using a grinder and a hydraulic saw (Jaws of Life?), firefighters were able to break the weight into 5 parts, freeing the man’s penis.

The Feuerwehr Worms Fire Department released a photo of the shattered dumbbell on Facebook, showing the dumbbell disc broken into 5 pieces, following the 3-hour operation to extricate the man’s penis from the dumbbell plate hole.

The firefighters from the Feuerwehr Worms (Worms Fire Department) also warned …

“Bitte solche Aktionen nicht nachmachen! (Please do not imitate such actions).”

Worms is located about 25 miles southwest of Frankfurt.
