An elderly woman called for help after losing the key to her chastity belt, a fire department in Italy said.

The 60-year-old woman of Padua, who was not identified, walked into the fire station and asked firefighters to cut her loose from the chastity belt.

At first, the firefighters thought that she needed help with opening a door to her house, but when she lifted her shirt and showed an iron chastity belt, they laughed and gladly offered their help.

The firefighters cut off the belt and questioned the woman whether she was a victim of domestic violence and was forced to wear it.

However, it turned out that the woman was wearing the belt voluntarily because she was concerned about incidents of sexual violence sweeping across Europe.
