A Rather Humiliating ER Visit

A 69 year old British man had the most terrible reason to seek medical help.  He had a ring like, sex toy stuck to his junk and it took over 36 hours to get it off.

The fit of the device was so tight that he couldn’t remove it and after getting to the hospital, surgeons couldn’t even remove it so the emergency crews were called in and the man was forced to sign waivers to acknowledge the dangers of what they were about to perform on him.  The firefighting crew, asked to do something that was unlikely in any of their extensive training used a four inch angle grinder to make their first attempt.

That didn’t work, so an air cut-off tool, which normally is used in car wrecks, was finally successful – after an hour – in removing the sexual aid.  The man has been released from the hospital and his name hasn’t been released, but he was given a subscription for a “cooling cream”.  (peet: isn’t that how all of this probably got started?)

Is This Lazy or Ingenious?

Austrian Hans Url, 56, was unemployed and determined to stay that way.

Wanting to retain his government benefits, yet not having to put in any actual labor Url had a problem.  He learned that if he didn’t accept a job that was found for him, the government would drastically cut the money and other benefits given to him.  But if he psyically could not work…

…A plan was hatched.

On Monday, just after his wife and kid left home for the day and just hours before a scheduled medical examine tied to his benefit status, Url did the unthinkable.  He put his leg up into a electric table saw in his home and cut off his foot just above the ankle.  For good effect he then tossed the severed foot into a wood stove so it would burn and be unable to be re-attached.

But, Url could not control the bleeding.  He was forced to call an ambulance and was rushed to the hospital.  The foot was pulled from the fire but was ultimately too damaged to salvage.  He was transferred to a different hospital where he is in critical condition after almost bleeding out, but is expected to survive.

A person from the job center Url had been reporting to has stated that just because of the incident Url still faces the possibility of work.  Lacking a foot doesn’t mean you can’t work it seems.  “He will be assessed once he is out of hospital,”  Hermann Gossinger said,  “and we will see what work we can find for him.”

Man Dies By Rats & Their Lack of Tact

An man in an Indian hospital (oh, that explains it) died from wounds suffered from rats that had chewed off his penis.  Arun Sandhukha, 53, had been admitted to the hospital for breathing issues and when his family came to visit a few days later they found him unattended and covered in blood.

He died a day later and is the latest in a long string of on-going issues with Indian public medial care.  Drunk doctors, hospital fires killing patients and now a rat infestation so bad that they are eating on the patients.
