  • A man presented at an emergency room in Gloucester, England, with a "munition in his rectum," police say.
  • Doctors removed the World War II artillery shell from inside of him.
  • Bomb disposal experts confirmed that the shell was "not live," per a police statement.

Bomb disposal experts were called to a hospital in Gloucester, England after a man told doctors that there was a World War II anti-tank shell lodged inside of him, authorities said.

The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team (EOD) arrived at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on Wednesday morning after hearing that "a patient had presented with a munition in his rectum," a spokesperson for Gloucestershire Constabulary told Insider.

The item had already been removed by doctors by the time the bomb squad arrived, the spokesperson added, and the EOD confirmed that the shell was "not live" and "therefore not a danger to the public."

The Sun   was first to report that the unnamed patient told doctors at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital that he "slipped and fell" on the two-inch-wide artillery shell.

The media outlet reported that the shell was part of his military memorabilia collection.

In a statement sent to Insider, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: "As with any incident involving munitions, the relevant safety protocols were followed to ensure that there was no risk to patients, staff, or visitors at any time."

The British newspaper   Metro reported   that procedures to remove objects from patients' rectums cost the National Health Service (NHS) around £340,000 ($450,000) a year.

I am a retired paramedic and had a case once where a couple was having sex with a long barrel revolver. It went off and she eventually died. Folk are strange.

I spent 18 years as emergency room x-ray technician in and out of the Navy. Cannot begin to describe some of the crazy and bizzare stuff that showed up on the x-rays I took! One of the more interesting ones was the Navy LCDR aviator type who got drunk and sat on a small coke bottle. Use your imagination on that one!

Awww.  You mean I can't post a comment that some political leader known to have suggested ridiculous cures for things might have suggested this as a cure for all possible ailments?

Okay, okay, I'll stick to something non-political.  Obviously the guy was trying to blow his mind.

When I saw this seed it almost blew my mind.

I bet after the South Park episode, there were people that stuck food up their ass to see if it would digest.

Actually, it was to see if after digestion that people could shit out of their mouths.  Total classic episode.

One year in the field (Army), a soldier jumped out of a tree and lost his footing upon landing, forcing him into a sitting position...right on a uprighted pine cone.  The tip ended up in bedded about 3 inches into his rectum.

Another time when I was stationed at MCAS Yuma a young Marine came into the clinic after hours when me and another Corpsman were working the front desk. When I asked the young man what he needed, the Marine very sheepishly replied he had a vibrator stuck up his rectum. Without losing stride and keeping a totally straight face, my partner looks at the kid an asks "What do you need us to do, give you new batteries or a longer extension cord?". It was all I could do to maintain a straight face. That would never fly today, but that was the mid 70's.

Artillery? Like um . . . How do I put this delicately . . . 

What caliber?

Also - and this might be considered TMI, but - Armor Piercing or High Explosive?

When I saw this one, there was a thought that occurred to me.  From the 2" dimension noted, depending on whether it penetrated to the case or just the shell, the cartridge  was either a 2pdr shell (37mm) or a 6pdr shell (57mm).  Since the 2 pounder AT round was widely regarded at that time as being totally ineffective on German armor, maybe the soldiers found another use for the ammunition and passed it along to their children and grandchildren.  One never knows!!!

I had one or two 30mm A-10 target rounds somewhere in the garage once.

They are iron painted white, not the uranium depleted types.

They were typically handed out as "atta boys" back in the day.

When threatened with an audit, someone came up with the idea of testing 

reconditioned SH60 SeaHawks using boxes filled with A-10 ammo to simulate the weight of many "passengers"

instead of living volunteers.

What could go wrong?

During the testing a side door slid open.

During a hard banking maneuver an ammo box slid out the open door.

Despite the pilots painstakingly detailed reports

and a ground search by several hundred service members and State Troopers

they did not initially find the box.

Of course when someone turned in the battered remains,

it was empty.

naturally.

The audit concluded that citizens had most likely confiscated the ammo and it would never be found.

Of course that altered the man caves of several associates and since the 

rounds were almost certainly live, they can't just be tossed into the recycle bin.

But I may have seen one or two at a flea market...

General Dynamics produced over 100 million PGU 30x173 practice rounds

which are now available on line, new or used from $90 to $50 

presumably, not live and no questions asked...

back in the late 60's and early 70's, me and my friends lived at the flea market on the weekends. then you could buy any kind of weaponry there. one of my most vivid memories was the guy that had belts and belts of 30 cal. ammo with the tracer rounds till in them. as hard as I tried to persuade him, he would not separate those rounds out and sell them.

decades later, I had clients proudly show me their weapon collections. M-16's, M-16's with grenade launchers, fully auto thompsons, uzi's, etc, etc. my favorite was the client that had a M1917 water cooled browning on display in his living room. after I was done fawning over it, he brought out a BAR for me to hold. he assured me that both were fully functional.

30mm is considered to be cannon ammo, hence artillery.
