What the nfbsk is wrong with people? Not only the adult scumbags who perpetrated this "prank" on a child, but the people that believe that two adults holding a child down and inserting an air pump into his anus and then turning it on is a prank.

Those two co-workers who pulled this "prank" on this kid are really a couple of sadists! They really out-did the Marquis de Sade in getting their kicks!

Geez! Some people are truly insane if not downright evil!

Well, for that to be dangerous, you don't have to insert the nozzle. There was an incident in Sweden some 20 years ago when someone, as a prank, put the nozzle against a coworkers butt. Even though he was wearing working pants and the nozzle never penetrated them, it was enough to burst his colon.

Heck, even putting the nozzle against skin is dangerous, as it might force air bubbles into the blood stream. Compressed air is not a toy.

Workplace health and safety information has not been adequately distributed and enforced. The dangers of compressed gas have long been well known.
