Third time was not the charm for a man in Kuala Krai, Kelantan, who had to seek firemen's help to remove a bicycle gear stuck to his penis.

The incident happened on July 30, when the 34-year-old went to the Sungai Durian Fire and Rescue Station to seek help.

This is reportedly the third time the man had sought firemen's help to remove junk that should, by right, not belong anywhere near his junk.

Upon the man's arrival at the fire station, the rescue personnel found that it was rather hard to detach the item, forcing him to be rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital, where it was cut open with a tool called an L cutter, in about 20 minutes.

The man was later allowed to go home with no injuries, except maybe a bruised ego.

A previous case involved the removal of a cylindrical object, which like the bicycle gear, had also become stuck to the man's genitals.

This is not the first reported case of men getting their family jewels stuck in places they don’t belong.

In March this year, a 16-year-old boy, got his member stuck in an iron pipe for about an hour.

Firemen who rushed to his house in Tangkak, Johor, failed to free the victim even after cutting the pipe from the wall, so they had to take him to the hospital, where he was finally freed of his predicament.

In 2018, firemen were called to rescue a 45-year-old man who had a ring, and a scissors, stuck on his penis. This man also had to be cut loose at the hospital.

The previous year, a 20-something man endured 12 hours of pain before finally seeking help to remove a ring stuck to his genitals.

Our sympathies to fire and rescue services personnel for having to deal with not only with natural disasters like fire, flood and landslide, but also man-made (quite literally) disasters like these.
