Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Firefighters in China shared video from the rescue of a man whose arm became stuck inside a noodle-making machine while attempting to make pasta.

The video, filmed at a shop in Sanmenxia City, Henan province, shows a man with his arm stuck deep inside a pasta-making machine after attempting to retrieve some of the dough he had dropped into the mechanism.


The footage shows the firefighters removing screws from the machine before using a hydraulic spreader to create a gap wide enough to remove the man's arm.

Firefighters said the rescue took about 20 minutes.
