PRANK COSTS SICK JOKER 4500
dailyrecord ^ | Jul 7 2005 | Charlotte Thomson

Posted on 07/09/2005 3:25:37 AM PDT by phoenix_004

A MAN who shoved a fire extinguisher hose up a pal's bottom and set it off was yesterday told to pay his victim £4500 compensation.

Brian Kennedy was also ordered to do the maximum 300 hours' community service following the prank that went horribly wrong.

Victim Kristofor Graham, 23, needed a colostomy after his rectum and large intestine were torn.

Last night, Kennedy, 34, said: 'I wish I could turn back the clock. I've apologised to Kristofor a couple of times but I know that's not enough.'

Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard that Kristofor and Kennedy were staying in a B&B in the city while working as shopfitters last September

The men, from East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, had been out drinking with colleagues.

They soaked each other with the extinguisher when they got back to their digs, John Richardson, prosecuting, told the court earlier.

He added: 'The complainer then lay face down on the bed with a pair of boxer shorts on. As he was asleep, he felt a hand on his shoulder.

'He then felt an object being placed in his back passage and he became aware of a loud hissing sound and the fire extinguisher being discharged.

'He was in immediate pain but didn't realise the extent of his pain until he got up to go to work and realised he was bleeding from his rectum.'

Kristofor went home for treatment because he didn't want his mum to be forced to travel north to see him in hospital.

He spent two weeks in hospital but was readmitted with abcesses and needed a colostomy.

Kristofor is still getting treatment and his injuries may never heal.

Kennedy admitted assault to severe injury. Gerrard McGuire, defending, said: 'Mr Kennedy was shattered by the events of that night and has found it very difficult to get over this matter.

'He has spoken to Mr Graham on several occasions and apologised. It was horseplay that went badly wrong.'

Sheriff Kiernan McLernan said he recognised that there was no malicious intent.

He said: 'Had there been any inference of intent then you would be serving a long period in custody

Something similar happened to a guy at work. He was blowing dust off himself with an air hose and put it down his pants. He turned the nozzle toward himself and blew up his abdomen with air. He wasn't seriously hurt but had to go to the hospital to get the air out.

This happened in the 70s in one of the mills back home.
A guy goosed a coworker with an airhose thinking it would be funny.
The guy died from internal injuries

I've heard a similar story only with an air compressor hose, the nozzle of which will fit quite nicely in the intended orifice. An air hose can deliver as much as 150 psi. A human rectum can withstand about 7 psi. You can do the math here. The story I heard had a similar result. I don't remember where I heard the story, must have been in a newspaper, like 20 years ago.

The British use hospital to describe the state of being, not the building. As we might say, "in treatment" the Brits say, "in hospital". Plus, it makes them sound dapper.

While they do not mention it in the article, in all probability the colostomy will only be temporary. Once his interior heals, they will likely re-attach the parts properly and remove his colostomy.

A happier ending...( ;-)

I can see how this can happen. People don't realize how powerful compressed air is. They routinely work with it. They hear "50 pounds per sq.inch" or something like that our machinery can easily create and don't realize they can be literally torn apart by that. People need to take a pressure gauge and see how much pressure they can produce. It takes huge amounts of energy to create 50# compression of a significant volume of air - but that is so common place for us that it isn't respected much.

Our incredible technology is not respected and this type of thing gets played out in many ways.

That explains why the compensation is so small. £4500 didn't seem like nearly enough for that kind of injury.

Announcer: Hold it! Is that what you’re having for breakfast?

Man: Sure, haven't you heard? Fiber is really good for you.

Announcer: Well, there's fiber, and then there's high fiber. Try this.

[offstage hands replace cereal box with Colon Blow cereal box ]
 
Man: Hmm.. Colon Blow. Sounds delicious. But is it really higher in fiber than my oat bran cereal?

Announcer: Take a guess: How many bowls of your oat bran cereal would it take to equal the fiber content of one bowl of Colon Blow?

Man: Two?

Announcer: Guess again.

Man: Three?

Announcer: A little higher.

Man: Four?

Announcer: Keep trying.

Man: Five?

Announcer: No, you'll have to do better than that.

Man: Seven?

Announcer: Guess again.

Man: Eight?

Announcer: We'll give you one more guess.

Man: Nine.

Announcer: Not even close. [ table starts shaking ] It would take over 30,000 bowls. [ a giant pyramid of cereal bowls shoots up from under the man, who yells in terror as it rises ] To eat that much oat bran, you'd have to eat ten bowls a day, every day for eight and a half years.

Man: [ after the pyramid settles; shouts from afar ] Wow! I think I get the picture! Colon Blow must be the highest fiber cereal on the market!

Yep. The National Health Service will cover all his medical expenses, so that amount (about 7 grand American) is for him.
