Car Stuck on Stairs in Brazilian Parking Garage After Wrong Turn

A soccer fan took a wrong turn while leaving Mineirao Stadium’s parking garage in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, after a match on April 14, with the fan’s car ending up stuck in a stairwell, reports say.

Video footage captured by bystander Cristiano Rodrigo Gomes shows the car positioned over eight stairs in one of the parking garage’s pedestrian exits.

The driver told CNN Brasil that he mistook a pedestrian exit sign for a vehicular way out.

His wife and child were passengers in the car, reports say.

Firefighters used a steel cable and a manual mechanism to lift the vehicle from the stairs, as the low ceilings precluded a tow truck from accessing the area, according to a local report. Credit: Cristiano Rodrigo Gomes via Storyful
