Elderly Man Accidentally Glues Himself To Roof

By geozone     Mar 13, 2007 in Entertainment
German police had to rescue a 91-year-old man who slipped while repairing his roof and ended up sticking fast to the tar "like a beetle on its back."
Passers-by said they were shocked to see the elderly man atop his roof. At first they believed he was about to jump off and commit suicide.
But he was just re-coating his roof with bitumen...that is, until he slipped.
The police and fire department were called in to perform a rescue operation.
"When we got there, he was like a beetle on its back, with his arms and legs sprawled out and completely glued to the roof," said a police officer. "Due to his age, he couldn't free himself from his unfortunate situation."
Firemen had to deploy ropes and ladders to gently free the man. Except for his sticky, tar-coated clothes, he was said to be unharmed.
