The inevitable happens when novice man attempts slack line

This was the hilarious moment a worker spotted a deserted slackline in a residential area of Denver, Colorado and attempted to walk across it yesterday (March 26).

The inevitable happened in the neighbourhood of Lakewood when the man's footing was ajar and the recoil of the slack line sprung back between his legs leaving him in agonising pain.

The filmer said: "We were working nearby and noticed the slackline

"The fella that got on it was all for it, when it touched the ground he said 'this is easy'.

"When he stepped off and it slapped him in the groin we, who were watching, laughed really hard!

"My initial reaction when he stepped on the slackline was to film this!

"Everyone around laughed at the outcome!"
