Siberian Man Gets Stuck in Trash Chute Fleeing from Girlfriend

The 31-year-old man became stuck in the trash chute at the 5th floor level after sliding from the 8th floor.

A Siberian man got stuck in a trash chute while trying to hide from his girlfriend, the regional branch of the Emergency Situations Ministry in Tyumen said in a report on their site Thursday.

Rescuers arrived at a residential building on Ulitsa 30 Let Pobedi to find a 31-year-old man stuck in the trash chute on the 5th floor level of the building.

The man told rescuers he jumped into the chute on the 8th floor while trying to hide after fighting with his girlfriend. He then slid down to the 5th floor, where he became lodged in the pipe and began to call for help, RBC reported.

Emergency personnel had to cut away a part of the tube to free the man, who was then sent to be checked by medical experts.

The Tyumen emergency service said this was the second time this type of incident had occurred in the past few years.
