A man was impaled in the groin area when he fell from a first-floor balcony on to a steel fence in inner Melbourne early today.

A Metropolitan Ambulance Service spokeswoman said the man, in his early 20s, fell from the balcony of a terrace house in Rathdowne Street, Carlton, about 3.45am.

He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a stable condition.

Metropolitan Fire Brigade station officer Craig Calwell said the man freed himself with the aid of emergency crews.

"We didn't use any rescue equipment. We supported him and he freed himself from the fence," he said.

"He suffered a wound in the groin area and lost a bit of blood. It was quite unfortunate."

Woohoo! I got the quote to work... okay... on to the article.

I've seen a similar case on 'Rescue 911' or some such show... a woman fell out of her dorm window, and was falling head first when her buttocks caught on the wrought iron fence. So close to smashing her head in! There she was, hanging upside down from the fence by her bum. Ugh. These fences make me paranoid now. It never seems to be the people who SHOULD be impailed on them who are.

As a man, oh yes. Funny thing, one thing all men know to watch out for is their groins and potential harm to those same groins!

I did that when I read this article.

As to the soccer, it chafe's too much to wear a cup. I wore one in hockey and baseball, but the risks are considerably higher. I mean on a free kick we all take a deep breath and protect our jewels, some sick bastards actually aim to maim....

That makes sense. And yes I know, for I played soccer in High School and Grade School and some numb-nuts always made it his single most important thing to focus on....

This really seems like a universal topic, I mean do you suppose there is some lucky fella out there who has lived a full life without knowing the pain?

Iwouldn't think so, and if any man claims so, I would be suspicious

Might even be tempted to kick him in the groin just so he won't feel left out

Heh, it's like burning, stabbing, electric shock, a 400 pound person just sat on you, but you also feel like puking all at once. It's by no means the worst pain, but at the time you may feel like it is.

Pretty close to the worst pain I can imagine!
