Footage shows a man struggling to remove his head stuck between the metal bars of the railings on the second floor of his home.
The frustrated man tried several positions to pull his head out but without success in Taichung city, Taiwan on February 12.
The man, Xie Jialiang, eventually forced his head out while his son watched. After a few tries, Xie managed to escape the railings without a scratch.
He said: ‘I saw in many movies how the protagonist was able to get their head out easily. I guess it was all camera tricks. My son was also watching me doing it.’
