Charles Amicangel had been delivering parcels when the ground suddenly gave way beneath his feet.
If you think you're having a bad day, spare a thought for this guy...
Amicangel had been delivering a parcel to a home in Apple Valley, California recently when the ground suddenly collapsed underneath him and he found himself falling into an underground pit.
Things went from bad to worse when he realized that what he had landed in was a septic tank.
Pulling out his phone, he even captured footage of his predicament.
"So I'm delivering to this customer's house and I just fell into a septic tank, I think," he said. "I don't know if they were digging it or what, but I walked by it and the ground came out underneath me."
"I'm like 6ft down and I tried using these roots around me to get out and they just pulled more dirt on top of me. I'm standing in knee-deep sludge."
"I really do not want to die in somebody's whatever you call this thing."
Fortunately, firefighters were soon on the scene and with the help of a ladder, he was able to climb out of the hole.
Incredibly, though, he still had to get back in his van and finish his deliveries.
You can check out the footage via a CNN report on the incident below.
