A GrabFood rider found himself in an uncomfortable position after getting trapped in a HDB block lift with his bicycle.

On Jun. 8, a video of the incident was posted on Twitter and went viral.

As of the time of writing, the video had over 54,000 views.

Twitter user @sxdbxar responded to the tweet, claiming that he was the rider in the video.

He said: "Yes that's me, I look way different and I'm way stupid during work."

Delivery bag was too big

In a separate tweet, he explained that when he first entered the lift, his GrabFood delivery bag was blocking the lift's sensor.

The lift door could not close, so he decided to squeeze inside and bend his body down in a weird angle.

However, the bike ended up pinning him in place, preventing him from getting back up.

Legs cramped up

According to AsiaOne, the incident happened in a HDB block lift at Tampines.

The 18-year-old rider was on his way to his friend's house to get his bicycle fixed.

He added that his legs started to cramp up while he was stuck.

Fortunately though, his friend was already waiting for him when the lift doors opened and quickly rescued him from further predicament.
