A bass player ignored severe pain and continued his performance after rupturing his testicle during a concert in the United Kingdom.
Otto Schimmelpenninck of Holland, said that a streamer cannon hit him in his private parts.
Schimmelpenninck knew that he was bleeding, and at one point, felt like he was fainting, but he still finished the performance and even squeezed in some extras.
After leaving the premises, Schimmelpenninck realized that his private parts swelled to the size of a large grapefruit. He went to a hospital, where he learned that his left testicle and some arteries were ruptured.
Schimmelpenninck underwent surgery the next morning. Doctors believe that he will make a full recovery. After six weeks, Schimmelpenninck will have an ultrasound to make sure that everything is fine.
