A motorist became trapped down a steep cliff edge that catches drivers out "every year".
A photo posted to Facebook by Blasket Island Ferries shows the ill-fated vehicle perched on top of a winding path down to Dunquin Pier in Co Kerry, Ireland, along with a tractor that appeared to be part of a possible rescue mission.
"There’s always one every year!" the ferry provider commented, followed by a cry-laugh emoji.

"A gentle reminder that the concrete pathway down to Dunquin Pier is for pedestrians and sheep only, no cars!"
Fellow motorists were quick to chime in with their own comments about the humourous scene, with one writing: "Thank goodness he didn't have a caravan on the back," followed by three laughing emojis.
"Challenge accepted see you in July," jibed another, while a third added: "Its the classic 'that sign is for others, doesn't apply to me.'"
The page was also quick to point out numerous other times when cars had become trapped along the precarious pedestrian path, also known as Sheep Highway.

In July 2019 one driver, thought to be a learner, made headlines for abandoning their vehicle on the road after getting it stuck along the same road between two walls.
Sharing photos of the accident on Facebook at the time, Blasket Island Ferries said: "Well it's that time of year again where the no through sign at the top of the pedestrian pathway to Dunquin Pier gets ignored.
"This learner driver has managed to get themselves fairly stuck.
"Good news that our ferries weren't running today, it would have been a catastrophe trying to bring people back from the island."
The account also revealed the blunder had happened previously despite road signs reportedly indicating to drivers they shouldn't pass through the area.
"The car has been removed from the pathway, it's abandoned at the top of Dunquin pier as we imagine that the clutch is probably burnt out," they said in an update.
The same thing happened in August 2016 when a driver was slammed by the official An Garda Siochana (national police of Ireland) Twitter account after falling prey to the common mishap.
"Would you get out & WALK ! Driver tried to drive down an almost 45 degree pedestrian access to Dunquin pier Co.Kerry," the force wrote.
