This is the hilarious moment a reveller falls down a manhole into a dank sewer while celebrating a riotous night out with friends.

The bizarre incident happened as the three pals were joking around in the city of Gijon in the northern Spanish region of Asturias.

Clambering into an area cordoned off by workmen, the pals - who appeared to have enjoyed one too many - were laughing and posing for the camera.

One man, referred to as 'Zapi', lifted up a wooden pallet that was covering an open manhole, but slipped and suddenly disappeared down the hole.

The other men rushed over, concerned for their friend, and it was immediately clear he had fallen some distance as they could not reach him.

"Zapi, what did you do? Are you hurt?" one friend calls down, while another lies on the ground peering into the manhole.

The cameraman can be heard laughing in the background as he walked up to the manhole for a closer view.

Eventually, the men, with the help of several passersby, managed to haul Zapi out of the sewer and he is seen dirtied but apparently unharmed, celebrating with his arms aloft.

Footage of his fall and subsequent rescue is proving popular with netizens after it was shared on social media.

The incident happened in Cimavilla, the oldest part of Gijon which lies on the Bay of Biscay and is the largest city in Asturias.
