Doctors in France have had to remove a World War I bomb from the rectum of an 88-year-old man, French outlet Var-Matin reports. According to the news site, the anonymous senior went to Hospital Sainte Musse in Toulon to remove the 8-inch artillery shell from his anus, which he had placed inside him for pleasure. Doctors at the hospital were not just concerned about the medical needs of the senior but also that the explosive could detonate in the hospital. However, it was quickly determined that the risk of an explosion was minimal. A spokesperson for Hospital Sainte Musse told the Daily Mail that the incident last Saturday required the "intervention of bomb disposal personnel, the evacuation of adult and pediatric emergencies, as well as the diversion of incoming emergencies."

The spokesperson also told the news site that the elderly man is now recovering well and was in "good health" after the 8-inch long and 2-inch wide shell was removed from his anus.
