  • The Mc Leod County Sheriff's said they cited the 19-year-old for underage drinking after she was freed by authorities

A teenage girl somehow got her head trapped inside a pickup truck's oversize tailpipe at a country music festival in Minnesota over the weekend, police say.

Officials said she got her head stuck in a truck's exhaust pipe near the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted. It is not clear why she did so.

The local fire department was called in, and used a power saw to help get her out. She was cited for underage drinking. She told the Hutchinson Leader, "We were just all having fun and I saw this big exhaust pipe, and I was like, 'Hey, my head could probably fit in that, ' so I tried it".

A brief video of firefighters working to free the teen posted Saturday to Facebook by Billy Little has been viewed more than 2.2 million times. She posted a picture of the experience on her own Facebook page.


Strom didn't expect to go viral, but she's not surprised. #winstock2k18kickedmyass, ' she wrote across the photo.

Her 45-minute predicament earned her 15 minutes of fame thanks to a six second video that raced around the internet.

"[I was] kind of confused because I didn't know what was going on, because I couldn't see around me", she said. "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. "I did not have to pay for anything like that, because he was absolutely wonderful".
