Man trapped in grease vent on restaurant roof for 2 days

Man stuck in grease vent

Despite his slippery surroundings, the man was stuck so tight he could not move and it was 'likely he would not have survived another day, ' according to Sergeant Ray Kelly of Alameda County Sheriff's Office.

A man who authorities say was possibly trying to burglarise an abandoned Chinese restaurant has been rescued from the grease vent, where officials say he had been trapped for two days.

Igor Campos discovered the trapped man when he heard a voice coming from what was formerly Chef Kwong's Chinese Restaurant, which is now shuttered and vacant.

It took nearly an hour to "extract" the man, who was then taken to a local hospital for treatment, the statement added.

First responders quickly determined the source of the desperate cries for help, the ventilation system on the restaurant's roof. Personnel then found a 29-year-old man trapped. "They found him stuck above the stove area here", Alameda County Fire Department Battalion Chief John Whiting told KGO.

British PM confirms crucial Brexit vote postponed
Barclay said Britain would enter "uncharted waters" if it loses the vote, but May could stay on as prime minister. Speaking to the Mail, May said a rejection of her proposals would mean "grave uncertainty" for the UK.

The man was "physically exhausted and suffering from dehydration" and was taken to a hospital for treatment, Kelly said.

It took almost an hour to pull the man out of his tiny prison, before he was taking to hospital for treatment. The restaurant closed in September, according to one user comment under the sheriff office's post.

The sheriff's office said it was investigating the man for trespassing and vandalism. "We know sometimes suspects try to break into businesses to steal copper wire and plumbing and recycling for money".

While he is expected to make a full recovery, he's not out of the woods yet.
