Firefighters helped a man extract himself from a shower stool after one of his testicles got trapped during his morning wash today.

The man, of Heron Flight Avenue, Hornchurch, was said to be “a bit embarrassed” by the incident, according to the fire crew who attended the incident at 11am.

“His testicle got caught when he was on his shower stool,” one Hornchurch fireman said.

“He is alright now, but it was a bit painful.”

He added it was left to London Ambulance Service (LAS) to decide whether to take him to hospital.

The Recorder has contacted LAS for a response.
