Turkish prankster's delight backfires

A practical joke left a Turkish man with torn intestines and in excruciating pain after a playful friend pressed an air compressor on his backside.

    The joke turned nearly fatal for the Turkish worker

    Anatolia news agency reported that the worker of an aluminium factory in the central town of Seydisehir had asked a colleague to clean off the dust from his back with an air compressor.

    But the co-worker instead pressed the devise to his anus.

    The victim underwent surgery while the errant colleague was taken into custody, Anatolia said.
