Magnitogorsk Resident Gets Stuck in Garbage Chute

Rescuers extracted a 20-year-old Magnitogorsk resident from a garbage chute after she climbed in to retrieve a brand-new makeup kit that she accidentally discarded.

The woman was found practically naked in a heap of garbage, the Chelyabinsk region's search-and-rescue service said in a statement on its website.

According to the statement, first-floor residents first raised the alarm in the early hours of Wednesday morning when they heard the woman screaming.

After arriving on the scene, rescuers found that the woman had gotten stuck on the level of the second floor after slipping while rummaging through garbage.

Rescuers then freed the girl by cutting through the garbage chute from below and catching the woman in their arms.

"Much to the surprise of the rescue service, the woman didn't rush home to get changed but continued to dig in the trash heap for her 'bag of beauty,'" the statement said, adding that the girl escaped uninjured.

"Unfortunately, there are no videos or pictures available," the statement added.
