A man landed himself in the hospital this week after impaling himself on a fence at a Hilton Garden Inn in Manchester, New Hampshire, where he got stuck attempting to flee before paying his bill.
Reuters reports that the 30-year-old North Carolina man, whose name has not been released, was impaled when he tried to jump a fence near the hotel. Fire crews were called to the scene around 11:30 p.m. Saturday evening and had to use metal cutters and hydraulic cutting tools as well as a saw to get him free, according to the Manchester Union Leader.
The man was taken to an area hospital, where reports seem to indicate that he is still doing well, despite having 18 inches of fence still in his leg when he arrived.
“He was actually in pretty good shape. He was texting and making phone calls. He was very cooperative,” said Lt. Max Chiasson, Manchester Fire Department, to WHDH news.
No word yet on whether the man has been released or whether the hotel will press charges. We’re pretty sure that the man has gotten “stuck” in enough trouble already, although we hope he has to pay his bill and the cost of the damage to the fence.
