Almost as ridiculous as the World Cup animal prophets is the dude who managed to get so drunk after the match on Wednesday that he passed out and was accidentally enclosed in his own store by workers who were carrying out a city renovation project in Yulin, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Firefighters has to pull down the brand new brick work in order to retrieve the unnamed fellow who had passed out there after a heavy night on the town watching the live game. Because of the time difference between Brazil and China, the live matches are shown late at night. The one on Wednesday started at 12:00 a.m. (so you can image the state he must have been in).
His better half told the rescuers she had not heard from her husband for over 10 hours and when he finally did answer his phone he spoke incomprehensibly leading her to worry. She contacted his friends who informed her that although her husband had been extremely drunk when he left the group had been intending on heading straight home. Obviously home and work seemed like much of the same thing for him at the time.
As the alcohol soaked up the man came to realize his predicament and proceeded called his wife. We imagine it was a very awkward conversation. In order to free the man, rescuers had to demolish the freshly laid wall as well as cut through a locked roller shutter.
