This is the moment firefighters rescue a Turkish who got stuck in an Ottoman-period cannon while posing for a photo.
The man, identified by his initials T.K., got inside the old cannon, on display on Barbaros Square in the district of Besiktas in the Turkish province of Istanbul, to pose for snaps.
However, the man became stuck in the Ottoman-period cannon and even companions and passersby were unable to get him out, according to local reports on 21st September.
