Firefighters called to remove YouTube prankster’s head from microwave

Gorkha Post



LONDON — A British man who had his head cemented inside a microwave by his friends had to be rescued by firefighters after the prank went wrong.

It took a crew from the West Midlands Fire Service one hour to pull apart the microwave and remove the cement from the 22-year-old man after they were called to a house in Fordhouses, Wolverhampton, reported the BBC.

“As funny as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured,” Watch Commander Shaun Dakin said in a statement.

Using the microwave as a mould, friends of the man poured sevens bags of Polyfilla mix around his head, with only a plastic bag protecting his head inside the microwave.

The firefighters were called after the man’s friends failed to set him free despite trying for an hour-and-a-half.

“He and a group of friends had mixed seven bags of Polyfilla which they then poured around his head, which was protected by a plastic bag inside the microwave,” said Watch Commander Shaun Dakin.

“The oven was being used as a mould, and wasn’t plugged in. The mixture quickly set hard and, by the time we were called, they’d already been trying to free him for an hour-and-a-half.”

Luckily, the man’s friend’s had managed to feed an air tube into the man’s mouth, through which he was able to breathe.

BUCHAREST — A Romanian court has rejected a man’s claim that he’s alive, after he was officially registered as dead.

A court spokeswoman said Friday that 63-year-old Constantin Reliu lost his case in the northeast city of Vasului because he appealed too late. The ruling is final.

Media reported Reliu went to Turkey in 1992 for work and lost contact with his Romanian family. Hearing no news from her husband, his wife managed to get a death certificate for him in 2016.

He was quoted as saying: “I am officially dead, although I’m alive, I have no income and because I am listed dead, I can’t do anything.”
