In an experiment to measure the size of penis, a 15-year-old boy got a USB cable accidentally stuck all the way up to his urethra.
The boy, who is a resident of London, United Kingdom, was rushed to the hospital after his parents failed to pull the cable out on their own.
As per reports, the boy was curious to measure the size of his penis. He used the USB cable to measure its length. He inserted the cable in his penis and it got stuck.
The panicked teenager told his parents about his ‘experiment,’ when they rushed him to the hospital.
He went into multiple surgeries to remove the stuck cable as even the doctors failed to remove it manually.
He was urgently shifted to the University College Hospital London for further treatment.
Surgeons there cut length-ways into his bulbospongiosus muscle (area between the genitals and the anus).
When the knot was removed, the remaining pieces of the USB cable were pulled out by opening the penis.
All the pieces were successfully removed and the recovered teenager was discharged from the hospital, the very next day.
His scans post-surgery showed that there were no lasting damages.
