FIREFIGHTERS were called into action when a Wigan man got his head stuck in the metal railings on his bed.
The bizarre incident happened at a house in George Street, Hindley, at 1.30am on Thursday, after a man thought to be in his 60s had consumed alcohol and lodged his head between wrought iron bed railings.
Crews used a hammer to prize the railings apart.
The man was uninjured.
John Thompson, crew manager at Hindley Fire Service, said: “The man had been drinking and was lying on his bed and his head went through the middle of the two railings.”
