Teen gets her head stuck in exhaust pipe at Minnesota music festival

Fire crews had to cut 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom free with an electric saw when her head became lodged in the oversize tailpipe at the Winstock Music Festival on Friday

A young woman has got her head stuck in a truck's exhaust pipe at a country music festival.

She was eventually rescued by firefighters who had to use a power saw to get her free according to WCCO TV. To add insult to injury, police cited her for underage drinking after she was freed and had a routine medical checkup to see if she hadn't been hurt in the freakish accident.

The footage has already been viewed over 2.5 million times on social media, with comments ranging from the sympathetic to the insulting.

Fire crews were called to the Winstock Music Festival on June 9 after Kaitlyn Storm, 19, got her head stuck in a truck's exhaust pipe.

The girl, 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom of Litchfield, Minn., told the Hutchinson Leader newspaper the incident happened when she was hanging with her friends the first day of the festival. We're choosing not to ID the enthusiastic concertgoer, but she did out herself on Facebook, with a post proclaiming "Yes, I'm the tail pipe girl, whatchu know about it?". "So I tried it. It did fit, but it didn't want to come back out", Kaitlyn continued.

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