An American exchange student had to be rescued after getting trapped in giant stone vagina.

Five emergency service vehicles and 22 fireman had to help the unfortunate lad after he got stuck in the marble carving in Tübingen, Germany on Friday afternoon.

The student is reported to have climbed in after a dare.

Erick Guzman who witnessed the incident posted on Imgur: "I was there!!! He just wanted to take a funny picture.

"The fire department was not really amused, and he was really embarrassed."

The sculpture Pi-Chacán, by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara, has been in its current location at the town's university for around 13 years.
