Hospital evacuated as 88-year-old man presents with WW1 bomb in Rectum



Explosive situation unfolds in French hospital, sparking bomb scare and emergency response

In an unprecedented and bizarre incident, a French hospital faced an explosive situation as an 88-year-old man arrived on a Saturday night with a World War I bomb lodged in his rectum. The incident not only prompted a bomb scare but also led to a partial evacuation of the hospital.

Hospital Sainte Musse in Toulon witnessed a two-and-a-half-hour emergency response involving bomb disposal personnel, evacuation of emergency departments, and diversion of incoming cases. The bomb, resembling an eight-inch-long, two-inch-wide artillery shell, was identified as a collector’s item from the First World War, used by the French military. The bomb disposal experts reassured the medical staff that the explosive was unlikely to detonate inside the man.

Despite the peculiar circumstances, doctors embarked on the delicate and risky task of removing the bomb, assumed to have been inserted for sexual purposes. Social media reactions varied from amusement to bewilderment, with commenters highlighting the unusual choice of object for such an act.

One doctor expressed astonishment, stating, “An apple, a mango or even a can of shaving foam, we are used to finding unusual objects inserted where they shouldn’t be. But a shell? Never!”

Ultimately, the medical team resorted to surgery to safely extract the bomb from the man’s rectum. The hospital reported that, after the procedure, the patient received approval for an expected full recovery.

The incident remains an extraordinary case, emphasizing the unexpected challenges that healthcare professionals may encounter in emergency situations.
