PETALING JAYA: Kota Baru firemen showed that they were up for the job when they were called upon to remove a steel ring stuck over a man's private parts.
Zaki Ismail, from the fire station here, said they received a call from the emergency room of the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital at about 7.25am on Sunday.
Zaki said the ring, which was made out of stainless steel, looked like a vehicle spare part.
When asked how the ring got stuck over the man's penis, he said he was unsure as he did not have details.
"We were concentrating on the job of removing the ring.
"The man was also unconscious at the time," he told The Star Online on Monday.
Zaki said the Department was called upon as the hospital did not have the right tools for the procedure.
"We had to go back to the station to get the right tools to perform the procedure," he said.
"Under section 341 of the Fire Services Act 1988, we were allowed to perform the rescue," he said adding that it took about an hour to perform the procedure.
He added that while removing rings from fingers was common, this was the first time he had come across a ring stuck on a man's penis.
"You can't have shaky hands and you have to be very confident while performing the procedure," he said.
