A German man has had the bright idea of sticking his penis into the hole of a 2.5kg weight. Unfortunately, he couldn't get it out on his own and the fire brigade was eventually called in.
After a hospital visit proved unsuccessful, fire services were brought in carrying power tools. After sedating the man, the firemen broke through the cast iron with the help of angle grinders and a hydraulic rescue device.
Taking to Facebook, the emergency service posted a picture of the shattered plate along with some sound advice, "Please do not imitate such actions!"
