According to Astro AWANI, Sabah Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM) Public Relations Officer, Mohd Affendy K Ramin said his department received the emergency call at 3:06 pm. 

Once bomba arrived at the Lahad Datu Hospital emergency unit, they made sure that the patient was in stable condition before proceeding with the ring cutting operation. 

“Firefighters cut the ring using a special cutting tool to prevent injuries to the victim. After almost 20 minutes of trying, the ring was finally cut from the victim’s finger,” he said. 

Affendy said that the victim then continued to get further treatment at the hospital once his finger was free.

He also advised the public to be careful when wearing a ring, and if there are signs that your finger is swelling, the ring should be removed immediately to prevent it from getting stuck as it can be very dangerous.

Take note, guys!
