Every cyclist's nightmare comes true as seat post goes up boy's rear2/26/2013
It's the cyclist's equivalent of waking up from a nightmare in a cold sweat: contemplating the possibility that your seat would somehow come dislodged — and your seat post would go up your rear end. Unfortunately for one rider, it's not just a nightmare anymore. A Chinese student was cycling to his first day of school when the seat bent over, and an exposed cold metal rod penetrated the boy's buttocks. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to detach most of the bike, and the boy was transported to the hospital to have the rest of the frame removed. The doctors were reportedly able to remove the bicycle from the boy's anus, and he's fine — though we doubt he'll ever want to get on a bike again. [Source]
