Exhaust-ing ordeal: Woman gets head stuck in tailpipe

A young woman endured an exhaust-ing ordeal when she got her head stuck in a truck's oversized tailpipe at a Minnesota music festival.

The odd incident happened at the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, Minn., about 40 miles west of Minneapolis, the Associated Press reported.

Unfortunately, although her head did fit into the pipe, she was unable to pull it out, resulting in fire crews freeing her with an electric saw and this now-viral video on Facebook.

She did, however, cop a citation from the McLeod County Sheriff's Office for underage drinking (the legal drinking age in the U.S. is 21).

A United States teenager has ended up in an awkward position at a Minnesota music festival.

Introducing 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom, the hero country music needs. "It did fit, but it didn't want to come back out", Kaitlyn continued.

"I'm just brushing it off, because that's expected to happen", she said.

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.

"[I was] kind of confused because I didn't know what was going on, because I couldn't see around me", she said.

Strom said the owner of the auto, Tom Wold, was very cool about the incident.

"I remember getting my head unstuck, and I just looked at him and apologized, and he said, 'No, I'm just glad you're OK".

"Who knows this girl", the post said. "I did not have to pay for anything like that, because he was absolutely wonderful".
