The Mom of 5-year-old Jack Collins, was horrified when she tried to pull her son’s swim trunks off after a swim, while on vacation.

After returning from the pool, she tried to help him out of his trunks but he let out a loud scream.

He let out the most gut-wrenching scream I’ve ever heard; it’s a sound no mother should ever hear,”  Laura Collins told The Mirror.

While he was playing in the water, the netting inside the shorts had wrapped around his penis.  The Mother ran to the front desk of the hotel she was staying in to get a pair of scissors. The staff encouraged her to take him to a doctor and he was eventually transported to the hospital.

The netting inside the shorts had wrapped too tightly around him for it to be removed comfortably. Doctors at the hospital had to give him a local anesthetic before they could finally cut the shorts.

Doctors observed the boy for several hours to ensure that his urinary tract remained undamaged before sending him home.

Apparently, Jack wasn’t the first case this hospital had seen. Another boy had come into the hospital just a few weeks earlier with a similar injury.

Collins is now encouraging other parents to remove the netting from swim trunks to reduce the risk of this occurring. Tesco, the company which produced the shorts, apologized for the incident and promised to look into the matter.

“Whilst we will be conducting an investigation with the manufacturer we would like to assure our customers that our swimshorts meet the industry standards required for the mesh lining,” the company said in a statement to reporters.
