Firefighters free man with penis stuck in steel pipe

By Calvin Palmer

When medical know-how and equipment failed to extract a man’s penis stuck in a stainless steel pipe, the only course of action was to call in firefighters.

The man, in his 30s, went to the emergency room at Southampton General Hospital but staff could not free his penis because the restricted blood flow had caused it to become aroused.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service were called and, armed with a four-and-a-half-inch blade disc cutter, the pipe was cut from the man’s penis in an operation that lasted around 30 minutes.

The patient was given anesthetic for the procedure and his penis eventually emerged bruised and swollen but otherwise unharmed.

The man gave no explanation to hospital staff as to how the pipe got stuck.

St Mary’s fire station manager Adrian Johnson said: “It was a very delicate operation. We did not want anything heating up. The person who did it deserves a commendation for his nerve and steady hand.”
