Firefighters free man who got genitals stuck

First published in News

A MAN had to be cut free by firefighters after getting his genitalia stuck in a ring.

Firefighters from Redbridge and a back-up crew from St Mary’s were called to the “medical emergency” at Southampton General Hospital at 11.25pm on Sunday.

Firefighters used a metal grinder to free the man after medics tried but were unable to get the man’s private parts out of the ring.

A spokesman for the fire service refused to be drawn when asked for further details about the incident but added: “It was certainly unfortunate.

It is amazing what situation some people end up in.”

It is not clear what kind of ring was involved.

Hang on, this story was originally reported by Matt Smith on 7 January:

"A MAN who got his genitalia stuck in a steel pipe had to be cut free by eight firefighters using an industrial grinder.

The heavy duty cutting gear had to be used to remove the three-inch long hollow pipe after medics were unable to release it.

The painstaking operation, which involved eight firefighters, took around an hour.

The drama began after the man took himself to the accident and emergency department of Southampton General Hospital."

Did it involve an energetic pole dancer?

Are you suggesting he possibly had his genitalia stuck in someone else's ring? Is that what you're trying to say :-)

How typical of the public sector to incur such waste on public resources. That said if there is one service that would know how all about genitalia stuck in rings its the firebrigade. That was probably one incident they didn't mind interrupting their snooker and tea break for.
Ridiculous comment. They weren't playing snooker at all. They popped in while they were on the "chip shop run".

Sounds to me like this guy was more involved in snooker. quick game of "pot brown" anyone?

Nothing would surprise me. I expect they enjoyed sliding down a greasy pole and getting over to that incident.

This was one incident they were well adapted to handing and I doubt for one minute they wanted to use the metal cutters.

If they had sent him an estimate of the bill to remove his member from his ring they would have probably not needed to attend. It would have focused his mind on something other than his present pressing pre(dick)ament.

What’s up Whitedom, did you get rejected by the fire service? Couldn’t make the grade? So now you spend your time berating our brave public servants, oh and despite the name I'm not a fireman, but I do hold them in the highest esteem, if not for them, plenty would not be here today.

Your comments suggest that you have no idea about the modern fire service. When not attending incidents firefighters are actively engaged in proactive fire prevention, intense and increasingly varied training, testing the wide variety of equipment now carried on the appliances and risk management that ultimately keeps us all a little safer.
The stereotypical image that you have portrayed is not only outdated and narrow minded but also quite offensive.
