It's one thing to get stuck at a bar, and another to get stuck in the pool table.

That's what happened to a woman in San Diego recently, when she attempted to grab a ball in a pool table. Firefighters said her hand became stuck because of the bracelets she was wearing, reported.

I don't know if she was going for an engagement ring or what, but she put her arm all the way in," Sharon Rangel, a bartender at the U-31 Bar and Cocktail Lounge, told

Firefighters were called to the scene around 1:45 a.m. and had to cut out a portion of the bottom of the pool table before the woman could be freed. The rescue took about 15 minutes.

Authorities said the victim walked away unharmed -- except for the embarrassment.

Bar manager David Woods told NBC 7 San Diego that the pool table is still functional thanks to the careful rescue work by firefighters.

But the woman who got stuck in a pool table isn't the only person who had to be rescued by firefighters after getting behind the eight ball.
