Intensive care paramedics arrived a short time later to find the 60 year old impaled on a an ornamental bed head through his stomach.

The paramedics worked for about half an hour with ACT Fire & Rescue firefighters and ACT Policing officers to get the man free.

Or was it a practice run gone wrong by a Public Servant for a future compensation claim whilst having bedroom antics? Either way he was up to his guts in it

Not even close.

Well I stubbed my toe once. Since I fronted up at 22:30 Saturday – possibly their busiest time – they had every right to put me at the bottom of the list and keep me waiting for hours. But the nurse saw me within an hour, said there wasn’t much that could be done about a stubbed toe and sent me on my way.

Frankly I’m appalled, most of the responses to this story have been stomach churning.

Some great quips but seriously, let’s hope the guy recovers.

But keep the quips coming, I like a good belly laugh 🙂

I’m betting it’s the last time this guy tries to engage in some acrobatic sex acts.

when I was in there on Friday morning, one bloke was recovering from too many drinks, apparently his busy body neighbours had called an ambulance to take him away because he was annoying them!! sounded funny in my overtired and dehydrated state!!

surely those scope for some jokes about beds in ED?

I’m going out on a limb here and say that it wasn’t the penetration he expected in his bedroom.

He may have been changing a light bulb while standing on the bed and lost his balance. Heard of this happening before. Hope he’s ok.
