At first, the two players in the western Czech city of Karlovy Vary thought it was funny when both of their hands became trapped inside the table. But panic struck when they could not free themselves, daily Lidove Noviny reported.
"Their trapped hands hurt them quite a bit," a fire brigade spokesman said. "We have no clue at all how they could become stuck in there. In the end we had no other option but to dismantle the entire table."
