Man dived in rubbish chute to escape girlfriend

A cowardly boyfriend got stuck in a rubbish chute when he tried to flee his girlfriend during a blistering row.

The 32-year-old had run from the couple’s eighth floor apartment in Tyumen, Russia, and hurled himself into the chute with his partner hot on his heels.

But the man, who has not been named by police to spare his blushes, found himself trapped after just three floors and had to yell for help.

Fire service spokeswoman Elena Tretiyachenko said:

“An eyewitness reported that there was a man in the chute. “The rescuers crew found a man, who was stuck at the fifth floor, in the garbage disposal.”
