This particularly painful looking photo is all over the interweb, but not many places have the story that’s behind it, so here it is:
This poor fellow is a bass fisherman from West Virginia. He was flying down a river in his bass boat at high speed, possibly exceeding 100 km/h. The waterway was narrow and safe manoeuvrability of small fishing boat compromised by revving it up to high speed, so when a curve came up, the boat was thrown against the bank and fisherman sent adrift.
Not realizing there were crazy boat riding fisherman in West Virginia, some weird character built a wooden fence around that part of the river. And that’s what our bass fisherman landed on upon his ejection from the boat. He impaled himself on a huge fence post from the back end in and the groin area out.
He was taken to a hospital where this picture was taken and made full recovery after 6 months (incredible). The doctors said that he was tucked onto that fence post so tightly, he suffered virtually no blood loss, which is what likely saved his life. There is no info on whether his penis survived the accident well enough to still perform, though.
