A teenage boy decided to shove a USB cable into his penis to measure the inside of it in a bizarre incident.
Doctors were baffled by the actions of the 15-year-old British boy, who arrived at an unnamed hospital admitting to the bizarre use of the common technology item.
However, having shoved it into the uncomfortable area, it quickly became apparent that something was wrong as the cable got stuck inside inside him.

To make matters worse, the cable became tangled and knotted.
The case was studied by doctors around the world, and a new report into the 2021 incident has been released on Science Direct.
The doctors wrote: “The two distal ports of the USB wire were found to be protruding from the external urethral meatus whilst the middle part of the knotted wire remained within the urethra.
“The patient was an otherwise fit and healthy adolescent with no history of mental health disorders.
“A longitudinal peno-scrotal incision over the palpable foreign body was made and careful dissection was undertaken through deeper tissues, splitting the bulbospongiosus muscle.
“Both ends of the wire were pulled out successfully through the external urethral meatus.”
When in conversation with the mother, it turned out the boy had been using the cable as a means of “sexual experimentation”.
Initially, doctors failed in their first attempt to get the cable out.

The doctors used a metal rod in a strange – and painful-sounding – method of fishing it out, but the knotting proved this to be impossible.
But in a sobering finale to the strange saga, the doctors had to cut up the section between the genitalia and the anus so that they could get to the cable from underneath.
This was a success – for the doctors, anyway.
The boy made a full recovery.
The report added: “Sexual experimentation and gratification, as well as underlying mental disorders, are considered the main causes of retained foreign bodies in the urethra and bladder.
“Management varies depending on the shape and size of the object, and the mechanism of insertion.”
