Boy, 4, posted himself

Firemen had to pull off a first class rescue in Austria after a terrified four-year-old got trapped inside a postbox.

Jakob Strauss wriggled in after postmen had left the door open in Feldkirch, and managed to close the hatch behind him.

"He was shouting for help but lots of people ignored him because they thought it was some sort of TV candid camera stunt," said one rescuer.

Fire-fighters using boltcutters eventually freed the youngster and delivered him back to his relieved mum.

"It was just a game that went wrong but the boy must have been scared stiff when he was stuck in there. He was screaming a shouting and by the time we got him out he was shaking all over," said a spokesman.

"He told his mum he would not be going anywhere near any postboxes any more and he never wants to see a letter again for the rest of his life after being stuck in there with so many of them."
