They say curiosity kills the cat, and a German man found this out the hard way.

On September 15, a resident of the German town of Worms, for reasons best known to himself, decided to stick his penis into a 2.5 kg weight plate at his local gym. And then, it got stuck.

After many attempts, when doctors were unable to remove the weight, the town’s fire department was called into free him, German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported.

His rescuers had use power tools to cut the weight in order to free him. According to British tabloid Metro, the man had to be sedated before the firefighters, using angle grinders and a hydraulic rescue device, succeeded in breaking the plate.

The entire effort took around three hours.

The firefighters later shared the tale on the department’s Facebook page, with the warning: “ Please do not imitate such actions!”
