An American exchange student sparked an "extraordinary rescue mission" when his leg became trapped inside a giant vagina sculpture.
The student told the fire department that it was a dare. Trying to be funny he tried to pose for an memorable photo and climbed into the artwork.
22 rescue workers with special equipment were deployed to the German city of Tuebingen to free the 20-year-old.
Worth nearly $200,000, the six-foot replica of female exterior sexual organ was installed 13 years ago outside the microbiology and virology department of the university clinic.
