US exchange student 'delivered' from giant marble vulva by German fire fighters

22 fire fighters in five vehicles were called to the scene in the grounds of Tubingen University Institute of Microbiology at about 1.45pm on Friday, according to Schwäbisches Tagblatt.
Named Pi-Chacán, which means “making love”, the sculpture has been at the academic institute for 13 years and is the work of Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara.
No damage was inflicted on the erotic structure and the student was retrieved unharmed – although undoubtedly with a red face.

Another user remarked that the photos could be used to promote studying abroad, while one individual simply commented: "So many questions..."
