Firefighters needed to free man who got stuck in a desk


A man had to be rescued after being stuck in a desk.

The Danish man called firefighters to his home in Horsens, Denmark after getting jammed.

Firefighters used a battering ram to enter his front door and free the man from the piece of furniture.

Dennis Ottosen, the incident commander told Danish website Ekstra Bladet: "Somehow the tabletop had dropped down over his legs. He was sat in his chair with a leg laid over metal beam under the tabletop. It was quite impossible for him to get free and he was in great pain."

They initially tried to lift the tabletop to free the man but eventually had to use cutting equipment to saw through the desk's metal supports.

The man has since visited hospital to receive medical treatment.
