Russian man freezes penis to bus shelter
A Russian man had to be rescued after his penis stuck to a frozen bus shelter while he was urinating.
The young man was on his way home from a bar in the southern city of Stavropol, in temperatures of -30C.
He stopped to urinate, leaning against the bus shelter for support, but swayed at a crucial moment and his penis stuck to the frozen metal.
The BBC reports the man was apparently taken by surprise by the cold temperatures, as Stavropol is normally one of the warmest Russian regions.
A large crowd gathered, shouting advice. Finally passerby Valery Levchenko was able to free the man using a kettle of warm water borrowed from a chemist.
The man reportedly refused further medical help before running off.
