A man went on a night out and got so drunk he wound up in a coffin.

Look, we get it - you're not always sure where you're going to crash after a night out. It might be a friend's house, it might be the backseat of your car, it might be a coffin.

Well, maybe not the last one, but that's what happened when Victor Hugo Mica Álvarez was buried alive after passing out in a coffin.

The 30-year-old from Bolivia was attending the Pachamama festival, which is celebrated on the first week of August as a day for Mother Earth.

The ceremony is celebrated by the Toba people of South America; an indigenous population who live across Argentina, Paraguay, and Bolivia.

Victor Hugo attended the festivities with a friend and while the pair were drinking and having a good time to start with, things quickly went south - around six feet south - when the drunk man decided to have a quick kip.

Feeling nature's call, Victor Hugo woke up and found that he couldn't move.

Imagine, waking up wanting a drunken p*** and you've been fully buried. Thankfully, Victor Hugo was able to smash his way out of the coffin and ran for help.

But that's not the strangest part of this story - you see Victor Hugo was covered in dust and had cement on his face, which led some to believe that those at the ceremony attempted to bury him alive as a sacrifice to Pachamama, or Mother Earth.

Speaking to local media, Victor Hugo said: "We've gone dancing, I'm the guide, and I don't remember anymore.

"The only thing I remember is that I thought I was in my bed and I got up to go pee, and I couldn't move anymore.

"And when I pushed the coffin I barely broke the glass and, through the glass, dirt began to enter and so I managed to get out. I have been buried."

If that isn't pure nightmare fuel, we're not sure what is.

Victor Hugo rushed to the police after freeing himself, but was told to sober up.

He said: "I have broken the glass, my whole hand has been hurt, I have barely gone out, but I went to the police, and they told me that I am drunk."

Imagine, you're scared you've been buried alive, you manage to free yourself, and with blood dripping down your face police tell you you're drunk.
