This is the moment a teenage cyclist is rescued after jamming his head in the hole of a concrete electricity pylon in a bizarre crash.
The 14-year-old biker – whose name has not been released – lost control of his bicycle in Olmaliq, Tashkent Region, in north-eastern Uzbekistan.
But as he went flying through the air his head went through a gap in the concrete and got stuck fast.
Video footage of the rescue shows firefighters widening the gap with a powerful hydraulic jack so his head can slip out.
The footage ends with the exhausted teen hugging one of the emergency workers after medical checks found him to be uninjured.
The Federal Ministry of Emergency Situations said: “On 9th June 9, at 4.54pm, a 14-year-old boy, while riding a bicycle along Tomaris Street, lost control and hit a concrete pole on the side of the road.
“It was reported that he had hit a support pole and his head stuck in a hole in the support pole and that he needed help.
“Rescuers immediately arrived at the indicated address, provided help to the child with the help of special equipment and handed him over to emergency medical personnel. The child is in good condition.”
