Man Caught Living In Rafters of Restaurant

A man was reportedly living in the rafters of a Yard House restaurant in Denver when he fell through the ceiling and got trapped in a wall. He was also allegedly half-naked.

"He was taken away in a gurney, he's being evaluated at Denver Health. ... You can see all of the flooding from inside the lobby of the Sheraton," the KMGH reporter says.

Somehow during the fall, water pipes were broken and the next-door Sheraton hotel was also flooded.

"There was moaning coming from one of the walls to the right of the front doors," James Ballinger with the Denver Police Department said.

Firefighters had to use a chainsaw to cut the man out of the restaurant wall, and a KMGH reporter tweeted the exact location of the booth near where the man was trapped.

Apparently, people in Colorado have a way with falling through and into walls. Last month, the Longmont Times-Call reported on a man who got trapped inside a wall of a Marshall's store. Police believe he was there for a couple days.

As for the unidentified man in the latest incident, police believe he has been living above the restaurant for a while after they found bottle caps in the ceiling.
