U.S. teen gets head stuck in giant exhaust pipe

The exhaust pipe briefly went in display in the local bar after footage of the rescue went viral

A young woman found herself in the wrong place at a central Minnesota music festival.

Introducing 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom, the hero country music needs.

That's a normal feeling when you get your head stuck in a truck's exhaust pipe for 45 minutes.

One version of the clip, posted to Facebook by someone who goes by the name of Billy Little, has been viewed more than 2.4 million times.

Firefighters used a power saw to free the woman from her predicament at last weekend's Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, about 40 miles west of Minneapolis.

She took to Facebook, sharing a picture holding the exhaust pipe, with the caption: "Yeah I'm the tail pipe girl, watchu know about it?" "It did fit, but it didn't want to come back out".

Strom poses after her head was freed from a tailpipe, thanks to an electric saw.

"A lot of people don't realize how serious it was", she told the Leader. So it's kind of expected when it's blasted on the internet that you're going to get negative comments ...

Strom said the owner of the vehicle, Tom Wold, was very cool about the incident. "I bet you could fit your head inside of it".

There's no word on who's going to foot the bill for the impromptu modification to the truck's exhaust pipe. She's a girl, she's drunk, and she was just freed from her own prison of a truck's exhaust pipe. "I did not have to pay for anything like that, because he was absolutely wonderful".
