Man gets his pink knickers in a twist

A man who woke from a colonoscopy to find himself wearing pink knickers is suing for damages.

Andrew Walls, 32, from Dover, Delaware, claims he became the victim of the prank while under anaesthesia at Delaware Surgery Center in October 2012, and that as a result has suffered mental anguish and lost wages.

Mr Walls was an employee at the surgery when the colonoscopy took place, where according to the lawsuit his colleagues “failed to maintain proper policies and procedures for the care of patients with respect to not engaging in extreme and outrageous conduct”.

Perhaps understandably, he no longer works there.

Mr Walls’ lawsuit emphasises: “When initially presented for his colonoscopy, he had not been wearing pink women’s underwear and at no time did [he] voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the women’s underwear upon himself.”
