Drinker blames drain fall on the beer
A German man's love of beer proved his undoing after he fell into an open drain - and couldn't get out because of his beer belly.
Gerhard Wilder, 46, from Bochum in western Germany, was wedged so tightly in the drain that he had to be freed by firefighters.
He has now pledged to stay off beer and go on a diet after embarrassing pictures of the incident were shown all over German media... [Ananova]
