Man says UPS delivery 'trapped' him inside apartment

Man says UPS delivery 'trapped' him inside apartment”

A man in California says he was trapped in his own fifth-floor apartment this weekend after a delivery driver left a package in the worst possible place.

Jessie Lawrence, of San Francisco, tweeted about the terrifying and freakish ordeal on Sunday - saying he had to call maintenance to get out. The image was widely shared on Twitter and Instagram.

"Glad you handled the situation", another wrote.

Naturally, Jessie's hilarious predicament has gone viral on Twitter, receiving nearly 50,000 retweets, including one response from UPS Customer Support which responded it would be "glad to assist you", asking Jessie to box them his concern. "Please click the link below to DM us the details of your concern".

"Feels like [the] concern was already clearly detailed", tweeted one person. "How much more info do you need", another wrote. Lawrence explained that even though his door does in fact swing in, his knob doesn't turn up, and others soon realized that the picture could have been taken by the maintenance guy or staged after the fact. From the picture, it seems that since the outside handle on the door can't go all the way down, the door can't be opened from the inside.

According to the New York Daily News, Lawrence himself refuted that claim, writing: "I wouldn't bother posting this if I was able to get out by pulling the handle up".
