1.The pregnant woman who died after her head got stuck in a railing
China’s Shaanxi Province is still reeling after a pregnant woman died when her head got stuck in a railing. Videos showed the woman in a kneeling position on the road, with her head trapped in a guard rail. Passersby tried to rescue her by pulling apart the rails but failed. Police and ambulance crews rushed to the scene and freed her body from the railing.
Sadly, she and her unborn children (she was pregnant with twins) were declared dead. Officials said they don’t yet know why the woman fainted (which led to her getting stuck and suffocating), but she could have suffered from a heat stroke or hypertension.
2.The motorcyclist who got stuck between a wall and a post
On March 2016, Argentine Ramón González, 50, suffered a freak accident while driving his motorcycle. His rescue resulted in hospitalization due to the fractures he suffered. According toReportereo, González suffered fractures in both legs and was transferred to the Nuevo Hospital San Antonio de Padua.
Apparently, González was riding his Motomel 125 through a roundabout when—thanks to an unfortunate maneuver while driving at a high rate of speed—he jumped the sidewalk and ended up stuck between a post and a wall. Firefighters worked for half an hour to release him after cutting him from the motorcycle.

In 2015, a Los Angeles woman had to be rescued after sliding naked down her former lover’s chimney. The unnamed 35-year-old was trapped for two hours before she was rescued by fire crews.
She was discovered by her ex-boyfriend Tony Hernandez (also the father of her three children) when he got up for work, heard her cries for help and saw her soot-covered legs dangling. He tried to free her from the 12in by 12in space using an extension cord but was eventually forced to call emergency services. They smashed through the chimney and fireplace in a two-hour operation.
