Drunk wakes up in ship container on way to USA
A DRUNK who mistook a shipping container for his B&B digs woke up in eastern China to find himself sealed in, heading on a two week boat trip to the USA.
Jiang Wu ( above) came round after a night on the town in Qingdao, Shandong province, to find that he had wandered into one of thousands of containers being loaded on ships bound for America.
“The container was sealed and he couldn’t get out – so he called everyone he knew for help and rang us too,” said a police spokesman.
“His problem was though that he couldn’t tell us which container he was in and there were thousands of them stacked on top of each other,” he added.
Jiang was eventually tracked down in a container stacked 60ft in the air by hammering on its metal side.
“He’s very lucky. If he’d been asleep for another hour the next stop would have been America,” said one docker. THE biggest ever crowd recorded for a women’s football game was 53,000 saw Dick Kerr Ladies beat St Helen’s ladies 4-0 on Boxing Day, 1920 – 53,000 turned up to watch.
