You may think you've had an epic night on the town. You may think your "woken up with a hangover" story hands down trumps all other "woken up with a hangover" stories.

But your story is nothing compared to Jiang Wu's.

Wu woke up after a big night in Qingdao, eastern China, in a sealed shipping container that was one hour away from a two-week-long journey to Los Angeles.

He had mistaken the container for his B&B and had to phone the police to get out.

"The container was sealed and he couldn't get out so he called everyone he knew for help and called us too," a police spokesman said.

"His problem was, though, that he couldn't tell us which container he was in and there were thousands of them stacked on top of each other."

Police eventually found him in a container stacked 18 metres in the air, following the hammering sounds he made.
