Exhaust-ing ordeal: Woman gets head stuck in tailpipe

Kaitlyn Strom was attending the Winstock Country Music Festival with friends in the United States when she hit upon a novel idea - sticking her head in a truck exhaust pipe.

Firefighters used a power saw to free the woman from her predicament at last weekend's Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, west of Minneapolis.

CDPR outs Cyberpunk 2077 as a 'first-person RPG'
From the minds that brought you The Witcher 3 comes a new RPG, set in a completely different universe, Cyberpunk 2077 . Returning in Cyberpunk 2077 is CD PROJEKT RED's hallmark of choices and consequences.

The 19-year-old told the Hutchinson Leader she was stuck for about 45 minutes until firefighters were able to cut the pipe and free her head. Video of the unusual incident went viral, being viewed more than 3 million times on Facebook. To add insult to injury, police cited her for underage drinking after she was freed and had a routine medical checkup to see if she hadn't been hurt in the freaky accident.

The local sheriff's office said once she was freed from the pipe, she was cited for underage drinking and escorted off the festival grounds, the AP said. "So I tried it. It did fit, but it didn't want to come back out".
