HENAN, CHINA — A man in China man drank so much that he decided it was a great idea to climb up a telephone tower, according to Ladbible.

The police and the fire authorities were called on to help save the drunk man.
Authorities struggled to reach the guy as they were trapped under a low gate and workers had to help dig up the road to allow the rescue trucks to go through.
The authorities then tried to get the guy to climb down the pole and even set up inflatable cushions for him.
