Man cleaning underpants with industrial air pump inflates when hose hits his anus
TO China, where a 26-year-old man cleaning his underpants with an industrial strength air pump slipped. This caused the pressurised air to enter his backside. The man says he didn’t “feel anything special” when the hose slipped towards his anus. But then he felt a sharp pang.
The air shot into his colon. The abdominal cavity swelled. Colleagues rushed him to Sun Yat-sen University Sixth Hospital in Guangzhou. There a CT scan revealed large volume of air inside him. A surgeon pricked him and the air rushed out. His burst colon was cleaned. Six hours later the surgeons stitched him up.
He a remains ill but his health is on the up, up and up and awaaaaaayyyyy.
