Bizarre! Man rescued two days after being trapped inside wall of theatre, found naked
A weird incident took place in a theatre in Syracuse in New York on Friday as a 39-year-old man was rescued from inside a wall where he was trapped for close to 2 days. The Syracuse fire department, in a statement on Facebook, said that firefighters “drilled a hole in the wall and utilised a fiber-oc camera” in order to know the exact location of the person who was trapped.
The statement from the Syracuse Fire Department read, “At 7:32 A.M. today, the Syracuse Fire Department was called to the Landmark Theatre, located at 326 South Salina Street, for a report of a person trapped inside of a wall. Theatre employees called 911 after hearing someone banging on the wall and yelling for help. It is believed that the person, an adult male, entered the theatre 2-3 days ago. It is not clear how exactly he gained access to the area behind the wall.”
The statement further read, “Upon arrival, members of Rescue Company 1 drilled a hole in the wall and utilized a fiber-oc camera to determine his exact location and how to best extricate him. Firefighters were then able to free the individual after carefully cutting through several layers of drywall and structural clay tile. He was treated and transported to Upstate University Hospital by AMR. His condition is not currently known.”
Speaking about the incident, Landmark Theatre director Mike Intaglietta said that the man was spotted roaming around the Landmark Theatre. “I don’t know if he was entering to keep warm or to use the bathroom. I don’t know,” he said.
As of now, no charges have been filed against the man.
