Did you ever remain stuck in weird places until someone found you?  These trapped people lived to tell the story of their accidents and they seem funny as we read them, but they could have ended in disaster, if it wasn’t for their rescuers. From a tub to a cable car and from a toilet seat to a prison, these are the craziest places where a human could remain trapped. Enjoy reading and feel free to share your own experiences and stories!

1. The man who got stuck to the toilet seat



According to Washington post, a man got stuck to a toilet seat in Wal-Mart, after someone spread glue on it.  The pour man was taken out by the emergency service with the seat still attached to his butt. The prank was pretty serious, as the seat was not easy to remove, even at the emergency room.

2.  The thief who got stuck in a ventilation duct



This unfortunate guy was trapped in the ventilation duct of the pizza shop he was trying to rob. The police had a hard time rescuing him from the tight duct, and he was pretty scared, both by the weird situation he got himself into and by the police, most probably. This thief has a long history in burglaries and was condemned 5 times until now for his crimes. Maybe his last misadventure will make him choose another career!

3. A German guy was trapped in a women’s prison

The poor man was trying to find a shortcut to the park when he entered a courtyard and a metal door suddenly closed behind him. His cries for help were heard by the mayor  who was passing by and called the police. However, they were skeptical, thinking that someone might be trying to escape from prison and that the caller was an accomplice. It was only after recognizing the mayor that the German guy was “released from prison”. The officials said that this was nothing but a funny event and no one should be blamed for it.

Jared Medeiros wanted to recover his wallet but fell, head first into a drain. The police was called to rescue him after his legs were seen coming out from the hole. Here is the official statement of the officers who arrived at the place of the incident: “”The officers arrived and discovered two legs kicking outside of a manhole.”  Simply hilarious…

This incident is hilarious if it doesn’t happen to be one of the victims! Imagine how it could be to find yourself trapped, upside down for 30 minutes several meters above the ground. This is what happened to the 16 tourists who were visiting an amusement park in China. The whole situation was produced by a power breakdown and the tourists were brought back to earth a little dizzy, but not injured.

6.  An old lady stuck in the bathroom for 3 weeks



The poor French woman was trapped in her own bathroom, in Paris, after her door lock broke and she was only rescued 3 weeks later, by the firefighters. They were called by an attentive neighbor who noticed that she hadn’t picked her mail since a long while. She amazingly survived by drinking water from the sink, but she was, as you can imagine, in a very poor shape. The lady had banged in the pipes so that her neighbors could hear her, but they thought that the sound comes from nosy workmen and they even filed a petition, asking them to stop.

Not long ago, on 13 August 2011, 20 tourists got stuck in a cable car, in the Alps. These unfortunate people remained suspended 100 meters above the ground for an entire night, before they could be rescued. The trapped tourists were provided with food and clothing, but this did not comfort them much, as you can imagine. The youngest prisoner of the cable car was only 4 years old, while the age of the eldest was of 75.

Things did not go as planned and the man got stuck into mud. Although he had his cell phone with him, he remained trapped for 4 hours, as he was too embarrassed to call for help and tried to get out of the mud himself. He finally gave up and asked for help and was freed after 7 hours of struggle. His fear of being made fun of was not without a reason though, since here he is, on the internet!
