A 47-year-old man has been freed by rescue workers after spending four months trapped in the now-defunct, internet-based social media network, Google Plus.

Toby Dell, a forklift truck driver from Whitechapel, East London, was eventually found trapped under a number of photographs of people’s dinners and snaps of unpleasant-looking children following a search by Google IT staff.

Mr Dell is now being treated in hospital for exhaustion, dehydration, and extreme boredom.

It is believed he became trapped after logging in by accident last February, just hours before Google closed the troubled site due to slow traffic and dire content.

In a similar incident last year, a 37-year-old woman was found dead in the online, employment-oriented website, Linkedin, after she was buried under an avalanche of fake job-experience claims and highly-questionable CVs.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
