He was rescued after passers-by heard his calls for help.

A 76-YEAR-OLD man trapped himself in an underground waste paper container in Amsterdam after he clambered in to hunt for a lottery ticket.

The elderly man managed to open the container and climb in yesterday because he feared he had tossed out a lottery ticket along with other used paper, police said.

Passers-by heard him calling for help and alerted the police who freed him with the help of firefighters.

The bad news? The man didn’t find his lottery ticket.
