Default Man inflates colleague. You have to see this story in 7days!

http://www.7daysindubai.com/Car-work...ail/story.html

A mechanic is recovering in a Sharjah hospital after his friend inserted a high-pressure air hose into his bottom and blew him up like a balloon.

Mushrif Hussain, 25, told 7DAYS from Al Qassimi Hospital that they were servicing a client’s vehicle in Sharjah’s industrial area when his pal decided to play a prank on him.

“He got hold of the air hose we use to blow air from the engine and placed it on my backside,” said Hussain as he demonstrated what had happened to him. He thought it was funny. I don’t think he meant to cause any harm.”

Sharjah Police have arrested the prankster and a police source said that he would be charged for inflicting actual bodily harm that could have resulted in death.

A medic attending to Hussain described how he was brought to Al Qassimi Hospital in critical condition, with an inflated stomach and screaming in pain. It took several hours for him to deflate.

“He is now in a stable condition and will be discharged in a day or two,” the medic said. “It could have been fatal since he couldn’t breathe properly when he arrived here.”

He said the mechanic’s internal organs could easily have been permanently damaged.

Surely it was up his backside not on? Lot of banter going on in his workplace if shoving an air hose up someone's ass is thought of as funny.

There was a story last year, in UK (or US?), about a guy who ended up with a nozzle piercing his skin and inflating him. Personally I think such stories are just blown up out of all proportion.

I can't thinking this story is just a load of hot air.

Can you actually inflate someone? He went to hospital with a pumped up belly which took hours to deflate... Wouldn't you just fart/shit it all out like when you have colonic irrigation?
