In what sounds like possibly the worst way to go, strongman Eddie Hall revealed he nearly bled to death after dropping weights on his downstairs area.
“I piled a load of heavy weights on a leg-press machine and then heard a loud thud,” he told The Mirror. “It had come crashing down and the weights had landed on my penis. I nearly bled to death.”
Despite the gruesome injury, the 31-year-old said he didn’t scream for help.
“It was bad. The worst ever. I didn’t cry for help though. I just lifted them off, drove myself to hospital and got stitched up. I was back training soon enough.”

Aside from breaking himself, the former World’s Strongest Man also spoke about items that have been on the receiving end of his bulk.
“I’ve broken a few sofas in my time,” said Hall, who stands at 190cm and weighs in at over 160kg. “I plonk myself down on my friends’ sofas and often they split straight down the middle. I have a custom-made, heavy-duty bed at home, but I’ve broken my fair share of hotel beds, too.”
