Rat tries to escape frying pan after falling in while trying to steal food

This is the amusing moment a rat was stuck in a slippery pan with oil after trying to steal food from the kitchen.

Chef Anh Phong was about to prepare food when he saw the rat picking up crumbs in his kitchen in Hanoi, Vietnam on Christmas Day (December 25).

The rat mistakenly jumped inside the pan with oil and struggled to jump out of the cookware while the chef watched.

He said: “I’ve seen them before but this is my first time witnessing a rodent jumping endlessly and it’s hilarious.”
