Here’s a maritime mishap we hadn’t seen before.

A fisherman in Taiwan who accidentally got tangled in his ship’s anchor line found himself hanging upside down in the air.

The unnamed fisherman was hanging from the boat's anchor for more than an hour after getting his feet tangled while operating the winch, according to news reports.

The man, who was not seriously injured, reportedly called for rescue from the Taiwanese coast guard from his cellphone while hanging from the anchor.
