Pipe Dream: Teen’s attempt to penetrate plumbing ends badly

Upping the ante to the already incredibly awkward teenage years today was a Johor boy, who found himself red, beet red, after fire officials were called to help remove his member from his residential plumbing.

Tangkak Fire and Rescue were called to the scene on Monday night, and found the 16-year-old boy still attached to the six-inch, five-millimeter pipe, that – to his credit(?) – was not in use at the time of the accident, says local Malay-language daily Sinar Harian.

Unable to extricate the boy manually, they first tried cutting the pipe from the wall, and prying the cylinder away. Unfortunately, this proved fruitless, and the boy, along with his metal appendage, were taken to a nearby hospital for further assistance.

At 10:40pm, the boy, his pipe, and the firemen arrived at Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital (HPSF), whose doctors and medical staff assisted in separating the boy from his proverbial? literal? love-shackle.

While he is said to be in stable condition, with his private parts swollen, officials say he suffered only minor injuries.
