Drunk Chinese Man Packed & Sealed, Almost Shipped to the U.S.
Posted on August 31, 2013
Drunken sprees almost always seem to meander into nowhere. But for an inebriated Chinese man in Qingdao, eastern China, ending up in a sealed shipping container was a near-miss experience he’ll never forget.
Had Mr. Jiang Wu not woken up to find himself in a shipping container an hour away from being shipped to the U.S., he could have found himself spending a two-week cruise — without the luxury and tranquility that usually comes along with one.
Thankfully, Mr. Wu woke up just before the ship’s departure, and, finding himself locked inside, phoned everyone he could possibly call before contacting the police.
Initially, it was like finding a needle in a haystack, as thousands of containers were placed on top of each other, but by banging on the container walls, Mr. Wu eventually caught the police’s attention, and hence was rescued.
After close scrutiny, the police found that Mr. Wu had mistaken the steel container for his B&B.
Who would have thought drinking a bit too much could almost lead one to the other side of the world?
Here’s the news video.
