Said and done. Seconds later, Kaitlyn realized she couldn't pull her head out, so she was stuck there for nearly an hour, until firefighters came and power-sawed her free.
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.
Kaitlyn soon discovered her head did indeed fit - then realised she was unable to take it back out again.
She wrote: "Yeah I" m the tail pipe girl, whatchu know about it? Admirably, she retained a sense of humor about the incident, posting a photo two days later of herself holding the now-detached exhaust pipe and giving a thumbs-up.
The teen said she was stuck for about 45 minutes and had a brief medical check up immediately after.
She was eventually rescued by firefighters who had to use a power saw to get her free according to WCCO TV.
"To not stick my head in a tailpipe", she told the Hutchinson Leader.
She said she's not surprised the incident went viral, but wants people to know it wasn't as amusing as it looked. He told Strom she didnt have to pay for it. "So it's kind of expected when it's blasted on the internet that you're going to get negative comments".
She also identified the owner of the pickup truck, who now has to buy a new tailpipe: Tom Wold, of Darwin, Minn. "But I trusted everyone who was around that I knew to get me out safely".
