ING ORDEAL: Woman gets head stuck in tailpipe

The 19-year-old is what you might call internet famous after video of her with her head stuck in an exhaust pipe at the Winstock Country Music Festival went nuts on social media. It is not clear why she did so.

The pipe that "Tailpipe Girl" got her head stuck in was briefly on display at Darwin Tavern.

The McLeod County Sheriff's office said they cited her for underage drinking.

A five-second video of rescuers working to free the teenager quickly went viral after being posted on Facebook the following day.

Her head was reportedly so crammed into the auto part that firefighters had to use an electric saw to free her.

'So I tried it.

Strom poses after her head was freed from a tailpipe, thanks to an electric saw.

"I remember getting my head unstuck, and I just looked at him and apologized, and he said, 'No, I'm just glad you're OK. Even [the people] with the mean comments for teaching me who I don't want to be like and how to be strong and not care and be bothered by what people say", Kaitlyn said addressing her haters.

Strom said the owner of the vehicle, Tom Wold, was very cool about the incident.

The girl later posted a photo of herself holding the dismantled tailpipe to Facebook, writing "Yeah I'm the tail pipe girl, whatchu know about it? I did not have to pay for anything like that, because he was absolutely wonderful".
