YouTuber Almost Dies Cementing Head In Microwave

A YouTuber had to be rescued by emergency services after a prank involving his head, a microwave and a load of Polyfilla went seriously wrong.

Now I’ve seen people do dumb things in my time, but this is up there with the stupidest – even watching it is making me feel I need to take deep breaths.

Jay Swingler, who is one half of TGFbro, along with a ‘friend’ mixed seven bags of Polyfilla before pouring it around his head, which was in a plastic bag (stupid) inside the microwave.

Jay had a plastic tube for breathing purposes and off they went, filming the whole fiasco from a garage of a house in Fordhouses, Wolverhampton.

The intention, presumably, was to use the microwave as a mould, I don’t know why.

As the Polyfilla set, the makeshift breathing tube started to get blocked up and it was obvious he was in real danger.

Panicking, his mate tried to dismantle the microwave but it didn’t work – and after a while, an ambulance, and West Midlands Fire Service were called out – and needless to say it didn’t go down well.

The fire service’s official account tweeted:

We’re seriously unimpressed. Five of our firefighters were tied up for an hour this afternoon, freeing a YouTube pranker whose head had been ‘cemented’ inside a microwave oven.

People commenting didn’t seem to be too impressed either, and even the Prince’s Trust tweeted a response.

They said: ‘Not only is this sort of ‘prank’ incredibly dangerous, it takes up valuable emergency service crews when they could be dealing with genuine emergencies. #dontbestupid.’

Wanting to watch the video – go on then, here it is:

Shaun Dakin, the officer in charge of the fire crew who responded, said:

As funny as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured.

Taking the microwave apart was tricky, because a lot of it was welded. ‘We video-called our technical rescue colleagues for advice and eventually managed to get him unstuck.

He was very relieved when we removed a large chunk of the Polyfilla with a screwdriver, allowing him to breathe more easily. But we had to be extremely careful with the screwdriver, working so closely to his head.

It took us nearly an hour to free him. ‘All of the group involved were very apologetic, but this was clearly a call-out which might have prevented us from helping someone else in genuine, accidental need.

Looking at the YouTube channel, the pranksters enjoy getting themselves in all sorts of sticky situations.

Videos of theirs include taking baths in substances such as fake tan, gelatine, expanding foam, solid concrete, and doing a sand paper slip’n’slide.
