Imagine taking a lovely stroll through the park when, all of a sudden, you realize you've accidentally made your way onto the grounds of a women's prison.

Such is the tale of an unfortunate 24-year-old man in Germany, who told police that he was already locked within the prison's confines before he knew what was happening.

Henning Blum, the city's mayor, heard the man's pleas for help as he happened to pass the prison. Blum immediately called police, who showed up to release the upset man.

The trapped man says he was taking a shortcut to a nearby park and walked through an open gate. Police are unsure why the prison gate was left open.

For everyone's sake, we hope he was the only one who escaped.
