Firefighters were called to a Manchester hospital to remove a sex aid from a 69-year-old man after a 36-hour struggle.
When surgeons at the North Manchester General Hospital were unable to remove the aid, crew members from the Blackley fire station used a precision cutting tool to free him.
The procedure was undertaken in the operating theatre of the hospital and took over an hour to complete.
According to the Manchester Evening News
, the man spent the night at the hospital and was released on Friday morning (June 8).
Fire crew members involved in the procedure were apparently offered counselling afterwards.
A representative said: "Our crews were professional and adapted to the circumstances they were faced with. We wish the man involved a speedy recovery."
