A 15-year-old boy who inserted a knotted USB cable into his penis ended up needing surgery after it got stuck inside him.
The unidentified teenager, of London, told doctors he inserted the cable to ‘measure the length of his penis’.
But his experiment went wrong when the already-knotted cable got stuck, with both ends of the USB left hanging out of his member.
The boy made several attempts to remove it himself but this resulted in him urinating a large amount of blood, prompting his family to take him to A&E.
Hospital staff also failed to pull out the cable using special tools due to the position of the knot, doctors detailed in the journal Urology Case Reports.
The boy was urgently transferred to University College Hospital London for further treatment.
He asked to be examined without his mother present, and confessed to staff that he inserted the cable to measure his penis out of sexual curiosity.
After an X-ray revealed the exact size and positions of the knot, the teen was sent to surgery. Source: Daily Mail Online
