Testicles under padlock for two weeks
A US man was taken to hospital after having his testicles stuck in a padlock for two weeks.
The man, from Brentwood, New Hampshire, says a friend fastened the padlock to his scrotum after a drinking session.
Corporal H D Wood IV said the man was severely intoxicated and had passed out.
He told police that when he woke up the padlock was locked around the top of his scrotum and his friend was gone.
"Never in my 13 years have I seen anything like this," Wood said.
The man tried to remove the padlock with a hacksaw after the key broke off inside the lock but without success.
He was taken to Exeter Hospital, where a locksmith was called to remove the lock. The man was treated and released without sustaining lasting injury.
"At this point we are not sure if it was a prank, or if it was an intentional act, or something done during a sexual act," Wood said.
