A scientist who was accidentally sucked into the Large Hadron Collider and fired 17 miles along its length at speeds reaching 186,000 miles per second was today said to be 'comfortable' after being rushed to Geneva central hospital following his ordeal.
Operators at the collider described a loud 'thunk' and shortly after a noise like 'someone sucking bubblegum through a straw'
"All I saw was a pair of legs rapidly disappearing and instinctively I grabbed hold of them', professor heinz viftisevern told us.
"But all I was left with was a pair of shoes and he was gone."
Other scientists were quick to dispel rumours that it has become increasingly dangerous to work at the collider following the previous weeks incident when some anti-matter leaked out of a small crack and took a cleaners left leg off.
