German man mysteriously gets penis stuck in gym weight plate

A man from Worms, Germany, somehow got his penis stuck inside a gym weight plate last Friday (Sep 15).

According to The Star, firefighters were activated after the man found himself in the bizarre predicament. 

When they arrived, they used power tools to break the 2.5kg weight plate. The rescue of sorts lasted three hours. 

The fire brigade posted a photo of the shattered metal plate on their Facebook page and warned others not to "imitate such actions".

German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported that the man was referred to a doctor initially, but they could not remove the item.

It is unclear how the man managed to get his reproductive organ stuck. That being said, we don't think we want to know either.
