A man trapped in a restaurant grease duct for two days has been rescued 

California’s Alameda County Sheriff’s office recently rescued a man trapped in a San Lorenzo restaurant’s kitchen-to-roof grease duct for two days, reports KPIX.

The office reports via Facebook that the man’s faint cries for help were heard coming from a “vacant Chinese food restaurant.” 

First responders traced them to a rooftop vent and soon after found the grease-covered man wedged into the duct.
