Greasy man pulled from Crown shaft
Every so often a news story catches your eye and prompts one reaction... WTF? That's what happened when I caught site of this little nugget on the Age website this afternoon.
A man who crawled into the greasy depths of the Crown entertainment complex is in hospital after 11 hours trapped in an exhaust shaft that serves the complex’s restaurants.
The 25-year-old climbed into a duct about 11pm and crawled deep into the building before coming to a sticky stop in built up fat and grease extracted from numerous kitchens, Metropolitan Fire Brigade Commander Wayne Garrard said.
When I clicked through to the actual story the inner headline was not quite as vivid in its description. I took a screen shot of the link from the home page for prosperity.
My favorite quote from the story was from the Fire Brigade Commander:
‘‘It looked like a cow had just given birth,’’ Commander Garrard said, describing the state of the extracted intruder.
Like I said at the start... WTF?
