Exhaust-ing ordeal: Woman gets head stuck in tailpipe


Kaitlyn Strom, 19, was at Winstock Country Music Festival in Minnesota, US, when she thought to put her head inside the metal cylinder.

The unusual incident happened at the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, Minn., about 40 miles west of Minneapolis, the Associated Press reported.

The post soon went viral, and has so far been shared more than two million times.

A young woman found herself in the wrong place at a central Minnesota music festival.

The girl, 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom of Litchfield, Minn., told the Hutchinson Leader newspaper the incident happened when she was hanging with her friends the first day of the festival. In all, she was stuck for a little over 45 minutes, and was given a medical exam right after she was freed.

One person she said was surprisingly kind was Tom Wold of Darwin, the owner of the truck.

"I remember getting my head unstuck, and I just looked at him and apologised, and he said, "No, I'm just glad you're OK". Who knows this girl?

There's no word on who's going to foot the bill for the impromptu modification to the truck's exhaust pipe.
