AN incredibly unfortunate man in Worms, Germany, got his penis stuck in the hole of a 2.5kg dumbbell plate at the gym.

Firefighters were called to the scene. It took a hydraulic saw, a grinder and three hours for Worms' finest to free the trapped man.

The hydraulic saw is more often used to free trapped car crash victims.

The man reportedly had to be sedated as firefighters cut through and smashed the weight.

Later, the fire department shared a photo of the broken weight on Facebook.

Translated, the caption said "One person had a very sensitive part of the body trapped in the hole of a 2.5kg dumbbell disc." They described the call-out as "somewhat different".

It was also captioned with a warning: "Please do not imitate such actions!"


The department offered no details on how the man became trapped.

The gym enthusiast is reportedly making a full recovery.

The incident comes just months after firefighters in North London used hydraulic tools to free a man who had his genitalia stuck in a penis ring for two days.

"To put it in layman's terms, he tried to put his veg in the ring as well but it stopped the circulation and became stuck," one of the firefighters at this call-out told the Evening Standard.

"It had been like that for a couple of days. I think it must have got to the point where he knew he needed to do something about it. It was swollen and a funny colour."
