Woman goes viral after getting head stuck in exhaust pipe

One 19-year-old woman from Minnesota found that out the hard way, after having her head stuck in the exhaust pipe for 45 minutes before firefighters were able to free her.

It's not known exactly how the woman got herself in that predicament. "How much alcohol does it take to get your head stuck in a diesel pickups exhaust tip?" She was also asked to leave the festival, on account of the underage drinking. A 5-second clip uploaded to Facebook Saturday, viewed 2.7 million times, shows a firefighter working to free the woman, who'd inserted and removed her head from the tailpipe earlier in the day without issue, per KARE.

Although she was unharmed by her close encounter with the inside of a tailpipe, the McLeod County Sheriff's Office cited her for underage drinking, according to The Associated Press.
