In the present days of industrialization, use of compressed air jets is common. Although industries provide employment to population at large, the misuse of pneumatic equipment at work place has relatively increased. We report a case of a male patient aged 20 years who presented to us with anal bleed, pain and distension of abdomen and severe breathlessness following for sexual stimulation. He was investigated and underwent emergency exploratory laparotomy with total colectomy of the gangrenous colon and end ileostomy. Postoperatively, the patient succumbed to a cardiac event.
