Firefighters rescued a man who had become trapped in a ventilation duct in north China’s Hebei Province according to local media. The 20 year old man seemed weak after failing to climb out of the duct on the roof of a building and the rescuers gave him water.

The rescuers hacked a hole in the wall of the bathroom to reach the man and were finally able to free him.

CCTV did not say how the man came to be stuck in the duct or how long he was there before being rescued. They did say that he was taken to hospital immediately and had sustained some scratches.
