17-year-old Irish boy suffers heart attack after friend squeezes his testicles
The unidentified boy allegedly had his scrotum ‘jerked’ by a friend in a prank, which caused him to pass out. He has since been put into a medically induced coma and is in stable condition.
The 17-year-old has been placed in a medically induced coma, following the incident in a suburb of Dublin. The pupil was heading back into school after a lunch break and joking around with a group of boys.
According to the Irish Mirror, one of his friends then “jerked his scrotum,” causing the emergency. A teacher and one of the group performed CPR at the scene while waiting for the emergency services to arrive.
A source close to the boy’s family said they believe it wasn’t a “savage attack” or carried out in a “malicious way.”
The teenager is said to be in a stable condition.
