About two weeks ago, a Minneapolis woman went viral after a video of her was posted on Facebook. What was the video about? Getting her head stuck in an exhaust pipe.
Kaitlyn Strom was enjoying her time at the Winstock Country Music Festival when she noticed a truck's rather large exhaust pipe. Of course the first thing that came to her mind was to stick her head in it. According to Hutchinson Leader, Strom said: "We were just all having fun and I saw this big exhaust pipe and I was like, 'Hey, my head could probably fit in that.' So I tried it. It did fit, but it didn't want to come back out."
Before firefighters came to her rescue with power saw, Strom believes that she was stuck for about 45 minutes. Though she did not face trouble for her foolish actions, the McLeod County Sheriff's Office " cited her for underage drinking."
The owner of the truck was surprisingly not upset about the incident. Strom shared that the owner said: "'No, I'm just glad you're OK. Don't worry about it.' He has already fixed his exhaust and is going to be working on that. I did not have to pay for anything like that, because he was absolutely wonderful."
While Strom knew that going viral would come with negative comments, she felt that "some people can be really cruel."
Moral of the story: if you see a large exhaust pipe, don't stick your head in it.
