14 hours of agony

New Straits Times - - News -

GE­ORGE TOWN: A man who hoped to boost his libido by put­ting a ring on his pe­nis, ended up in pain.

He had to en­dure more than 14 hours of agony as he was un­able to re­move the metal ring since Satur­day night.

It was even­tu­ally re­moved by a team from the Jalan Perak Fire and Rescue Depart­ment that was called in to help by Pe­nang Hospi­tal.

The depart­ment’s op­er­a­tions chief, Mohd As­rul Naim Abidin, said the 20-year-old vic­tim was in a sta­ble con­di­tion.

As­rul said the man had ear­lier used the ring in an at­tempt to increase his sex­ual en­durance.

He added that it be­came stuck and the vic­tim’s or­gan started to swell, caus­ing in­tense pain. He tried re­mov­ing it us­ing soap and oil, but failed.

As­rul said the vic­tim went to the hospi­tal the next day to seek help, but med­i­cal per­son­nel there could not re­move the it, prompting them to call the Fire and Rescue Depart­ment.

Once the depart­ment’s per­son­nel ar­rived, it took them 10 min­utes us­ing a pair of pli­ers to break the ring.
