Viral video of man stuck in seat belt brings laughs to millions

I feel as though this should be shared, if you find it as funny as Kelly and I did then it will be a great start for a Tuesday. We were on our way home from Massachusetts and made a pit stop, Clint figured he could stretch his legs, the seat belt had locked up and this is how it went !!!!!!! I hope this will brighten your day. Hugs Update..... after we calmed down and starting breathing Kelly took control and got him out., poor Sadie is traumatized in the back and what in the heck is hydrophobic ?

Seatbelts usually save lives, but this one wanted to make sure its user wouldn’t get hurt — even after the car was off.

Clint Chadbourne, a 71-year-old Portland, Maine man, went viral after his wife, Bonnie, uploaded a video of him stuck in a seat belt on Facebook. The video has been viewed more than 32 million times since it was uploaded on April 6.

“(While) we were on our way home from Massachusetts and made a pit stop, Clint figured he could stretch his legs,” the video’s description said. “The seat belt had locked up and this is how it went!

While Clint was able to get out safely, the Chadbourne’s dog Sadie, who is featured in the back of the video, did not escape without a little trauma.

Bonnie said while the video was made at the cost of her husband, she is glad to see the positive reactions that have come from it.

“The comments are wonderful,” Bonnie said in a follow-up Facebook post. “When someone writes that they were having a bad day and after seeing the video they have tears running down their face and they mean happy tears it makes us feel very humble.”
