TYUMEN, Russia, May 17 (UPI) -- A man who had to be cut from a garbage chute in the Russian city of Tyumen told emergency workers he was hiding from his girlfriend.

The 32-year-old man said he was on the eighth floor of his building when he decided to disappear, RIA Novosti reported. He went into free fall before getting wedged in at the fifth-floor level of the garbage chute.

"An eyewitness reported to the regional rescue service that there was a man in the chute," said Elena Tretiyachenko, a spokeswoman for Emergency Response Services.

Tyumen is in western Siberia.
