Its not just in skiingBe careful with ALL your equipment at ALL times:
On a bet, Everitt Sanchez tried to wash his own "balls" in a ball washer at the local golf course. Straddling the ball washer, Sanchez dangled his scrotum in the machine. Much to his dismay, one of his buddies upped the ante by spinning the crank on the machine with Sanchez’s scrotum in place, thus wedging them in solidly.
Sanchez, who immediately passed his threshold of pain, collapsed and tumbled from his perch. Unfortunately, the height of the ball washer was more than a foot higher off the ground than his testicles are in a normal stance, and the scrotum was the weakest link.
Sanchez’s scrotum was ripped open during the fall, and one testicle was plucked from him forever and remained in the ball washer, while the other testicle was compressed and flattened as it was pulled between the housing of the washer, and the rotating machinery inside. To add insult to injury, Sanchez broke a new $300.00 driver that he had just purchased from the pro shop, and was using to balance himself. Sanchez was rushed to the hospital for surgery, and the remaining threesome were asked to leave the course.
