Pictures Emerge of Man Who Got Penis Stuck In Gym Weights

Back in September, a weightlifter was taken to hospital in the German city of Worms after he placed his penis in the hole of a weight and realised he couldn't remove it. I have no idea why anyone would do that either.

Pictures have now emerged of the weightlifter's wedged willy after they were leaked online by an unknown source. You have my sympathies, mate.

The images were meant to be for official use but quickly went viral. The hospital that treated the man has now launched an investigation to find out how the photos were leaked.

The patient, who is probably grateful to still be unnamed, required firefighters to free his purple and swollen penis as doctors were unable to remove the metal plate.

Emergency services spent three - yes, three - hours removing the 2.5kg (5lb 8oz) weight using specialist equipment. This equipment included a grinder, a vibrating saw and a hydraulic rescue device.

Thankfully, he was sedated while the operation took place. Imagine having to watch a saw whirring that close to your mannschaft.


It is still unknown how exactly the man managed to get his penis stuck in the weight. That one's probably best left to the imagination.

A spokesman for the fire brigade said: "How delicate some of our firefighters can be was shown when we called in support of the hospital.

"One person had a very sensitive body part wedged in the hole of a 2.5kg dumbbell disc.

"The dumbbell weight could be removed after three hours with the help of a grinder, a vibration saw and a hydraulic rescue device."


As well as the picture of the man's penis, the fire brigade shared a photo of the weight after it was shattered to remove it from the man.

Sharing the image of the broken weight, the fire brigade described the episode as a 'curious training incident'. One can only wonder what the guy thought he was training for.

Any regular gym user will know that this type of weight is often used with dumbbells and barbells, allowing the user to adjust the load.

This bizarre incident looks like a good cautionary tale for anyone looking for an new way to blow theirs.
