Meet Mr. Not So Goodwrench whose tool got trapped in a tool

Size matters, so make sure you pick the right tool for the job

Malaysian Digest:

A man had to seek help from firefighters to remove a wrench from his genital.

The man from Tweed Heads, Australia was hospitalized after his attempt to remove his swollen genital from a wrench failed.

Firefighters had to cut the wrench using a cutter.

Vittorio Hernandez, International Business Times:

When his organ became erect and he could no longer remove it from the ring spanner, or wrench, a tool used usually by mechanics to provide grip and mechanical advantage in applying torque to turn objects or keep it from turning, the man had to go to a hospital. The hospital had to call the fire department for assistance in the delicate surgery.

Tenplay reports that the team used a small angle grinder to free the man’s organ. Peter Sutherland, senior firefighter from Tweed Heads, shares, “We use a tiny angle grinder that’s air operated and use measuring tape to protect the skin and slowly zip away at it while keeping water running on it so it doesn’t get too hot.”

Sutherland discloses that firefighters are no longer surprised with such types of calls which they receive every now and then.

Senior firefighter Peter Sutherland told The Courier Mail this type of call was not uncommon.

‘It’s really dangerous because inevitably people leave it too long to come see us because they are embarrassed, or say my wife said to put butter on it, sleep on it and it will go down,’ he said.
