Hazards of Naked Sunbathing

A naked sunbather had to be rescued by firefighters after he fell down a slope head first - and landed upside down with a metal spike stuck in his groin.

Naturist Gavin Rigby, 34, was left stranded on top of the eight inch spike for half an hour after the bizarre accident.

Three firecrews including one armed with special cutting equipment arrived at the scene along with police and an ambulance.

He was eventually freed by six firefighters who managed to lift him of the spike.

Mr Rigby had been sunbathing with pals by Haslar Lake, in Gosport, Hants, yesterday afternoon when he got up to stretch his legs.

He walked away from the group but lost his footing and toppled head first down the short slope.

Gavin landed on the eight inch metal spike, which was protruding from the ground.
Apparently, he was drunk.
A naked sunbather suffered minor injuries when he became impaled on a rusty metal spike during a drinking session with friends.

The 34-year-old had been drinking with two friends and his girlfriend near Haslar Lake, in Gosport, Hampshire, yesterday afternoon when he decided to sunbathe naked.

As he went to go to the toilet, he slipped and was impaled through the groin on the 8in iron spike.
