New York! City of dreams and naked men inside your walls! Wait ... what? No, really: according to Pix 11, a Manhattan woman contacted police after hearing shouts coming from inside her walls.
"We received an alarm for a man stuck in a wall," FDNY Chief Patrick Tansey said about the incident. The call prompted over 40 firefighters to help extricate the entombed resident from his situation.
Apparently, the trapped dude had been on the roof where he slid down a shaft and became stuck. "The shaft was so small that his body took up the entire vent," Tansey added. "So, using power tools was out of the question. We had to expose him by hand."
The story given by the unfortunately underclothed victim was that he thought he was sliding into a pool below him: "He had told the occupant who called us something about a pool in the basement, but I don't know," Tansey said. He was found to have been sober after the rescue.
Luckily, New York's finest managed to save the hopefuly swimfan with only minor injuries.
Next month, the occupant's landlord will figure out a way to increase her rent and list naked men in the walls as a luxury ammenity. (Just Kidding.) (Kind of.)
