Firefighters posted tense footage on November 5 showing the moment they removed a metal ear tunnel from a man’s finger in Szekesfehervar, Hungary.
“It started out as a joke but it ended up in a rescue,” Hungary’s National Directorate General for Disaster commented on the video, posted on November 5.
According to the post, the man put the ear tunnel, used as a piercing, on his finger. As he couldn’t remove it the next day, he went to the firefighters, who cut the tunnel with a grinder while protecting the man’s finger with a teaspoon and pouring water on his hand to stop the metal from getting hot.
