A man was forced to call fire services after his penis got stuck in a gym weight.
The unnamed man had to endure a gruelling three hours of pain whilst firefighters tried to use power tools to free his penis from the hole at the centre of the 2.5kg weight plate, after doctors at a hospital in Worms, Germany, were left perplexed by the scenario.
The news broke after the fire crew posted a warning to gym goers on their Facebook page over the weekend, where they urged other males not to attempt the somewhat silly move.
Next to a picture of the broken weight after they had freed the man, they wrote: ''A message of a somewhat different kind was received on Friday morning, 15.09.2017, at the control centre.
''One person had a very sensitive part of the body trapped in the hole of a 2,5 kg-dumbbell disc.
''With the help of a cutting grinder, a vibrating saw and a hydraulic rescue device, the dumbbell weight could be removed after three hours.
''Please do not imitate such actions! (sic)''
It is not known at the time of writing what the man was attempting to do when he found himself stuck on the hefty weight plate.
Now that he's been freed, it is also unknown whether or not his nether regions have made a full recovery.
