A man in his sixties has been rescued after his penis was stuck in a steel pipe for two days in Fujian Province, local news website fjsen.com reported.
Doctors and firefighters in Quanzhou City took four hours to cut the steel pipe around the patient's genitals on Sunday. An electric cutter was used to remove the 5-centimeter-thick pipe, according to the report.
The man was too embarrassed to tell his family what had happened and he was found shivering two days after the incident, his son said.
Firefighters were called in when hospital doctors said there was nothing they could do, according to the report.
The report did not mention how the man's penis got stuck in the pipe.
