Firefighters free YouTube prankster who cemented head into microwave

Firefighters free YouTube prankster who cemented head into microwave

A YouTube prankster in the United Kingdom had to be freed by firefighters after cementing his head with Polyfilla inside a microwave oven, Zululand Observer reports.

This unsafe combination is what fire crews were greeted with when a prank went drastically wrong in Wolverhampton this week. Sky News first reported that it took an hour for the crew of five firefighters to free Swingler, after he had cemented his head inside a microwave oven in the garage of his home at Fordhouses, Wolverhampton, U.K.

Before the fire service arrived the group had spent 90 minutes attempting to get the man out and had been able to put a air tube in the microwave so that he could breathe. It took nearly an hour to free Swingler.

Summary: An England-based YouTube prankster took his prank too far when he tried to make a mold of his head inside a microwave oven with cement.

He also revealed that during the rescue the firefighters had to video call technical rescue colleagues for advice on taking the microwave apart. Watch Commander Shaun Dakin of the West Midlands Fire Service said, "As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured".

The man was left shaken, but unharmed, after his rescue.

The man has since been identified as YouTube personality Jay Swingler and the stunt was part of the TGFbro channel's "extreme Christmas calendar, ' in which Swingler and his friend set each other challenges in the countdown to December 25".

Dakin added: "He was very relieved when we removed a large chunk of the Polyfilla with a screwdriver, allowing him to breathe more easily".

Late Thursday, the channel shared a video, which contains some distressing scenes, of the stunt-gone-wrong.
