WEST MIDLANDS, UK– It’s a prank that some people– including the man’s mom– were not laughing about. A man in his 20s from the UK woke up to find a bike lock around his neck.
The BBC said the man had been out drinking the night before with friends. “He had been sleeping, waking up to find not only the lock but that his prankster mates had lost the keys!” according to West Midlands Fire Service.
The lock was so strong, the fire service had to call a Technical Rescue Unit, who used a kit normally used to cut railway tracks.
The man was covered with a fireproof blanket and a circular saw was used to cut through the steel to free him.
