Several drunk men cut off their own ears after not winning an arm wrestling match, according to hospital officials in Russia.
A bet is a bet, according to two drinking companions in the southwestern region of Kuzbass, Siberia.
The person not winning was to cut off their own ear, Kuzbass Region Police said on Friday.
“During the drinking party, two men decided to hold an arm wrestling match, and the one who doesn’t win was supposed to cut off their own ear,” police said.
The loser of the first round was not satisfied with the results, so the two decided to hold a second round, which ended in a draw.
Since neither party won, they finally reached an agreement that they will both cut off their ears, one fully and the other only halfway, according to the police report.
Both arm wrestlers have been hospitalized, but no details of their condition were provided by the police.
A similar incident occurred in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk.
During a binge drinking session, the host cut off part of one ear of their guest after a bet.
Apparently, the friends had decided that the host should cut someone’s ear. The doctors were able to sew the ear back together.
