A drunk man got stuck in a ventilation shaft after trying to follow the smell of soup.

Ivan Ozerov, 31, was forced to call for help after he managed to become trapped in the 40-centimetre wide shaft in Barnaul, in south-central Russia's Altai Krai region.

Vladimir Prisyazhnykh, the head of the rescue team, said: "The shaft width is about 40 centimetres (15 inches). This size corresponds to a 14-year-old, but is not suitable for an adult."

Firefighters were called to the scene, where they found the man wedged inside the shaft.

The rescue team eventually managed to grab him by the legs and pull him to safety.
