A  man in Johor suffered serious injuries after getting his ring stuck to the door handle of a lorry

According to Harian Metro, the incident caused the 23-year-old man’s finger to tear and he could not remove the ring he was wearing.

While being treated at Sultan Ismail Hospital (HSI) in Johor Bahru, they also found that he had fractured his ring finger.

The emergency ward had to seek assistance from the Fire and Rescue Department to remove the ring

Tebrau Fire and Rescue Department operations chief Khairul Azhar Abdul Aziz told the Malay daily that his team received a call at 3.39pm on Monday, 30 November.

He explained that the hospital required the rescue department’s help to remove the ring using a special tool.

“The victim said that his finger got stuck to the door handle while getting off a lorry, causing the skin on his finger to tear,” he said.

“He went to HSI to receive further treatment and the hospital called firemen to help cut the ring he was wearing.”

The victim had to endure about an hour of pain before the ring was finally removed

Sinar Harian reported that a total of 12 firemen were dispatched to the hospital and it took them roughly 20 minutes to cut the ring.


In some of the most bizarre reactions from the public over a global pandemic, it has been reported by CNN and The Guardian that some Americans have ignored all cautions of social distancing for the sake of spending some time by the beach. Despite being initially closed from public access, Mayor Lenny Curry of Jacksonville, Florida has decided to reopen some of the city’s most well known beaches for ‘essential activities only’ last Friday (17th April 2020).

However, Mayor Curry said recreational activities consistent with social distancing guidelines such as walking, biking, hiking, fishing, running, swimming, taking care of pets and surfing are considered essential, and are hence permitted. Instead, activities such as sunbathing, grilling, and congregating in large groups are forbidden, according to CBS News.

“This can be the beginning of the pathway back to normal life,” he told the public.

“Please respect and follow these limitations. Stay within the guidelines for your safety as well as for the safety of your neighbors.”

Which begs to wonder if any of those who had flocked to the beach are practicing any social distancing measures at all. Within 30 minutes after the beach reopened, its bucolic shores were immediately packed to the brim with hundreds of Florida natives. It bears to note that as of today (20th April 2020), the United States has recorded a death toll of nearly 40,000 according to Al Jazeera News.
