Drunk Man Strayed Into Cargo Container, Almost Shipped Abroad
On August 9 around 4am, a drunk man surnamed Jiang from Shandong Qingdao mistook a cargo container as his [work] dorm room, opening the door of the cargo container and immediately falling asleep. At 7:20am in the morning, the lifting of the cargo container shook Jiang awake, and he found himself trapped in the cargo container. He contacted his co-workers right away. His co-workers reported the situation to the police in time. As Jiang was unable to provide the accurate location of where he was trapped, as soon as Qingdao Development Zone police received the report, [the policy department] dispatched 40 police personnel to all Qingdao ports with cargo containers for search and rescue.
Through constant phone contact with Jiang, Jiang finally found the serial number of the cargo container, and [police] finally located the cargo container that Jiang was trapped in. The freight yard also dispatched 60 staff members [to assist the] police in searching. At 9:30am, as the sound of Jiang’s knocking on the cargo was finally heard, [his cargo container] had already been stacked in the first column, eighth row, and fourth level, at a distance of 20 meters above the ground. Picture is of the police lifting the cargo containers above Jiang’s cargo container.
August 6, Shandong Qingdao, in the process of lifting the cargo container, Qingdao Development Zone police officers stayed connected with Jiang [through the phone].
According to the person in charge [of the cargo station], workers had began stacking this batch of cargo containers ever since 6am that morning, the batch of containers having been custom-made for a U.S. company, and to be shipped to the U.S. the next day. Picture is of Jiang’s cargo container being lifted off.

MB fool, such a great opportunity and he doesn’t go, what is he waiting for?

How do you know where this cargo container will be shipped? And there is no food or drink, [he could have] died 9 times before reaching the destination!

This is what I wanted to say.

This freight ferry would travel for at least half a month, or even 40-50 days. He could have starved to death. If it was a cargo container with cookies and mineral water, and you were lucky enough to be in it, then that would be great.

With just that half-filled bottle of mineral spring water and wanting to go there [the U.S.], in such hot weather, even if he didn’t starve or thirst to death, he would have suffocated inside.

He would’ve choked to death on [the smell of] his own shit.

This has pointed out a path for escape. Everyone follow.
[Let’s] do a survey. Those who want to emigrate and no longer stay in China, ding me [my comment]. Let’s see how many people ding me! [19,296 upvotes at time of translation]
It was only after the fool came out that he suddenly thought of America and weeped bitter tears! Too much alcohol results in many mistakes!
Have to try it if there’s an opportunity~~ but, need to quietly make inquiries beforehand to be clear about everything~~ [if they’re containers headed to] North Korea, Cuba, Haiti, Congo, or places like that, then forget about it~~

Countries worse than our Heavenly Kingdom are just these few, you won’t be so unlucky. According to probability, the odds are good!

If [I had to] pick one country by lot, I’d still give a shot. If my destiny was really that bad and I picked North Korea, Cuba, Haiti, Congo or similar places, then I’ll just kill myself!
Such a great opportunity wasted.

If this entire cargo container was made of iron, it could probably be sold for a lot of money.

Damn, a Henan man has his eyes on it [the netizen who commented above is from Henan Province].

How do you steal such a big [cargo container]?
对天朝无言了 [网易广东省佛山市高明区网友]: (responding to above)
This you have to ask Henan people!! It’s their specialty!!
The cargo container was stacked in the middle, blocked by other containers on all sides. A small cutting machine? Forget about it!! Besides, even if you escaped the container, you’d still be discovered on the ship by the crew members, and be repatriated by the U.S. Immigration Department.
After he entered [the cargo container], who closed the door from the outside after him?
So nearly escaped from the sea of misery.
Bring along food and get ready for emigration!
Haha, go out and have fun, and then be repatriated back to China.
网易江苏省手机网友 ip：117.136.*.*: (responding to above)
One has to pay for his/her own flight ticket if being repatriated.

No way, that stingy?
共舞猿 [网易上海市浦东新区网友]: (responding to above)
But the way [to illegally emigrate] has already been pointed out, so you just need to bring enough compressed biscuits, water, as well as bringing along vitamins and other nutritional supplements. Also enough storage bags (for poop and pee). And bring a few drills, so you can drill some holes in the cargo container.
这个有点难 [网易山东省网友]: (responding to above)
I hear the containers have to be scanned by some kind of ray before being loaded onto the ships, and being scanned by that ray increases the chance of Leukemia. Requesting those who know for a scientific explanation.

Then he would have to spend a bunch of money buying a professional anti-radiation lead suit.
What’s the strangest place you’ve found yourself after being drunk?
