WINSTED, Minn. — Firefighters had to use a power saw -- very carefully -- after a young woman got her head stuck in a truck's oversize tailpipe at a Minnesota music festival last weekend.
The strange incident happened at the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, Minn., about 40 miles west of Minneapolis, the Associated Press reported.
It's not known exactly how the woman got herself in that predicament. But it wasn't the first time she had stuck her head in the pipe that day, KARE-TV reported.
The fire chief told the news station it was actually the second time the woman had put her head in the diesel truck's tailpipe that day. The first time, she was able to get it out unassisted.
Someone at the festival took a short video of the rescue, which has been viewed more than 2.6 million times.
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.
