Elyria – With gas prices through the roof lately, this situation was going to happen sooner or later. Elyria Firefighters were called to the 100 block of Marseilles after a man got his finger stuck in a gas tank.

Neighbors said the man was siphoning gas from his sisters van when somehow he got his finger stuck in the hole. They tried for sometime to extricate the finger themselves before realizing they needed the Fire Department.

Firefighters cut portions of the van away in order to safely remove the finger from the hole.

LifeCare Paramedics stood by during the extrication but the man required no medical attention.

I just hope the EFD and Lifecare got as much of a laugh out of this story as the rest of us did. Thanks for running the story TMC.
