It took 45 minutes of what must have been excruciating agony from squeezing his frame into the tiny box for him to give up the attempt and exit the traveling box.
passengers at the BeitBridge Border post where startled when they started hearing moans of pain coming from the bag.
iMzansi reported the incredible incident;
"The tall man in his early 20’s had squeezed himself into the case and was wheeled onto a Mercedes Benz Sprinter, disguised as his friend’s luggage. But the discomfort took its toll after 45 minutes, causing him to wail"
