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.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to visit Australia, Fiji
Given how many rules and traditions the Royal Family are said to adhere to, it's little wonder Meghan still needs some guidance. This became a turning point in Meghan's life, that was the moment when she fell in love with Prince Harry .

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".

Strom didn't expect to go viral, but she's not surprised. "But I trusted everyone who was around that I knew to get me out safely".

No word on whether the truck owner billed her out for the unexpected mods.
