Firefighters remove man's head from microwave after YouTube prank goes wrong

Firefighters remove man's head from microwave after YouTube prank goes wrong

The 22 year old prankster, who was trying to make a mould of his head in the freaky stunt, became stuck when his friends poured polyfilla around his head (which was already protected with a plastic bag).

The clip shows Jimmy Swingler, one half of popular show TGFbro, getting his head caught inside a cement-filled microwave.

Watch Commander Shaun Dakin, officer in charge of the West Midlands Fire Service crew who responded, said: 'As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured'.

The jokers wanted to use the microwave as a mould but they ended up having to call the fire brigade after spending 90 minutes frantically trying to free him.

The man's friends put an air tube into the microwave so he could breathe while he waited for help. "The mixture quickly set hard and, by the time we were called, they'd already been trying to free him for an hour-and-a-half".

"As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured", said Watch Commander Shaun Dakin, officer in charge of Fallings Park Community Fire Station.

We're seriously unimpressed. Five of our firefighters were tied up for an hour this afternoon, freeing a YouTube.

Responders had to pull the microwave apart to get him unstuck, and they were not pleased about the call-out.

The 22-year-old man was filming the stunt on Wednesday for video sharing site YouTube, where prank-based channels can boast tens of millions of subscribers. "But we had to be extremely careful with the screwdriver, working so closely to his head".

The firefighters prioritized removing a chunk near his face in order for him to breathe more easily.
