Gym Member Gets Penis Stuck In Weight Plate For Three Hours

Firefighters had to use a saw to cut his member free.

It's the latest installment of the 'Free Willy' franchise you never saw coming.

What should have been a simple trip to the gym has culminated in a man having a team of firefighters, equipped with a cutting grinder, vibrating saw and "hydraulic rescue device", free his penis from a 2.5 kg dumbbell disc.

The curious gym goer from the German town of Worms, south of Frankfurt, was caught in the weight for three hours after what one can only assume followed a decision to step-up his weight lifting routine.

In a Facebook post, the firefighters asked people to "not imitate such actions!"

It's not known whether the bloke managed to get it up -- or, indeed, if he will ever be able to again.
