Texting schoolgirl gets stuck in drain

A schoolgirl found herself stuck in a drain after mistakenly falling down the hole while texting.


A schoolgirl got stuck in a drain because she wasn't looking where she was going while she was texting.

The youngster from Mianyang City, in southwest China, was messaging her friend when she mistakenly fell down the hole and her leg became lodged between two bars.

According to the Metro newspaper, the embarrassed girl was then left there for 45 minutes as the fire service attempted to free her.

Fire brigade spokesman Ming Lai said: "We managed to remove the bars and quickly freed her once we arrived at the scene.

"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."
