A 91 year old man in Magdeburg, Germany, was trying to fix his roof with bitumen when passers by started to get the wrong idea and thought he was going to jump. Unfortunately whilst they called the police he fell backwards onto the roof. The police said:
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.
Fortunately the local fire service rescued him and he was unhurt but in need of a laundry service..
Mind you, I’m seriously impressed that someone of that age would be out doing DIY on their own roof! Good on ya!
