Drunk Indian man, 22, gets a 5.5inch-long STEEL CUP stuck removed from his stomach ‘after it got stuck when he shoved it up his anus’
- Ritesh Kumar, 22, from Bettiah had surgery at Patna Medical College Hospital
- He arrived at the hospital in agony with a bleeding rectum because of the cup
- It was blocking his bowel movements and surgeons had to cut it out of him
A drunk man needed to get a steel cup removed from his body after it became stuck when it was shoved it up his anus.
Ritesh Kumar, 22, from Bettiah, India, rushed to Patna Medical College Hospital in severe pain with a bleeding rectum on October 4.
He was suffering agonising stomach pains because the 7cm (2.75in) diameter cup was blocking his bowel movements, according to local media.
Scans revealed the 14cm (5.5in) long cup was inside his body and he went under the knife for two-and-a-half hours to have it removed from his belly.

Revealed: The risks of putting things in your anus
People most commonly shove objects into their rectum for sexual pleasure.
This is partly to do with the number of nerves in the anus making it highly sensitive, and for men can simulate the prostate, an erogenous part of the male reproductive system.
The insertion of objects into a rectum, also known as anal play, carries a number of risks.
As well as getting stuck objects, they can also potentially perforate the bowel which can be deadly as material from the digestive tract can spill into other parts of the body, causing an infection.
The NHS advises that anyone exploring anal play do so safely, and use an object with a flared base to prevent it from getting lost inside.
Dr Indra Shekhar Kumar, who led the surgery, said the procedure was risky but a team of 11 doctors removed the cup safely.
Mr Kumar was given a colostomy — when part of the bowel is cut out and a stoma bag is fitted — to allow his wounds to heal.
Doctors aim to discharge him over the next week and will reverse his colostomy in January.
He claims he was drunk when the cup was inserted into his anus and does not remember what happened.
Dr Kumar Vaibhav Sharma, a senior resident who was part of the team of surgeons, told the Hindustan Times: ‘The steel glass was inserted through the patients’ anus.
‘This is a very rare case, mostly seen in psychiatric patients or those who are intoxicated.
‘Our surgeons removed the metal glass after performing the surgery through the patient’s abdomen at 4am, within a couple of hours of his admission.’
A similar incident in August saw a man have a cup removed 10 days after it was inserted in a drunk prank.
The 45-year-old from Balipadar, India, was apparently pranked while out drinking with his friends at Surat in Gujarat, an Indian state which prohibits alcohol.
Bihar, where the most recent incident occurred, is also a dry state.
Shoving large objects up an anus can cause a host of problems, including constipation, which can lead to haemorrhoids and incontinence.
Inserting objects can also cause small tears in the anus, rectum and bowels, which can lead to deadly infections and sepsis.
If an object is too large to retrieve by taking it back out the anus, surgery usually requires cutting through the intestines.
