Hold your breath, fellas! What you are about to see is going make you feel the pain in your balls. (If you have balls)
The victim of this accident is Zach McWhorter, a 21 years old pole vaulter from Brigham Young University.
His testicles were impaled by a pole during his training in the university.
The moment of the accident happened was recorded and uploaded to TikTok.
According to BuzzFeed, McWhorter was sent to the hospital by his coach immediately after the accident. He received 18 snitches in the hospital.
"I could see right into my scrotum."
McWhorter should be fine by now as he was able to chill with BuzzFeed.
“Fortunately, as far as I know, there is nothing wrong with my testicles — just a scar. One day, we’ll find out if they function or not…”
He then shared two valuable tips for pole vaulters (and their balls) to stay safe.
1.“Don’t free ball (wearing cross country shorts without spandex)”
2. “Always put a cap on the end of the pole”
Stay safe while you are doing sports, no matter if you are a guy or a girl.
