Locker Room Humor
2009 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin
(17 July 2009, Germany) Unexpected odds and ends are always turning up in
train station lockers, but this is the oddest yet. After a night spent
carousing with friends, squeezing into the Ludwigshafen train station
locker had seemed like "an amusing idea" to the man. He shut himself in a
suitcase locker for fun, but the laughter faded as the oxygen supply
dwindled. His companions were unable to open the locked door and free the
20-year-old. With time running out, police broke open the door and dragged
the groggy prankster to safety.
"And just why did they let him out?"
