Girl gets Leg Stuck in a Drain while Texting and Walking
A Skinny Chinese teenager was left stuck after her entire leg got wedged in a storm drain. The unnamed teenager had been walking down a street in Mianyang City, in southwest China while using her mobile phone to text a friend. Unfortunately she wasn't looking where she was going, and when she stepped on a drain her legs went straight through the grill leaving her wedged.
Onlookers tried to help, but after realising that she was completely stuck, called emergency services who arrived and freed her after a 45 minute ordeal. “We managed to remove the bars and quickly freed her once we arrived at the scene,” Fire brigade spokesman Ming Lai said.
“Her leg was a bit scratched and bruised and numb from being squeezed through the bars, but she quickly recovered and did not need hospital treatment.” Eyewitness Jun Niu who posted snaps online said: “She was more embarrassed than anything else, she covered her face up with her hands when people were gathered around and it was clear she didn’t want to be there.
Firefighters were called and she reportedly endured only scratches and bruises. Some bystanders suggested the bars of the drain might have been slightly bent before she stepped on it. “She was incredibly thin though, I reckon normally nobody would be able to get their foot down there but the bars were a bit bent so I guess that was why it happened.” Said one of the bystanders.
