Burglar stuck under door for nine hours
A burglar has been arrested in the US after he got his head stuck under a garage door - for nine hours.
The man, 53, tried to hold open the roll-up door with a piece of metal during his midnight raid on a store in Brockton, Massachusetts.
But the metal slipped and the heavy door rolled down, trapping the would-be thief's head against the concrete floor, reports the local Enterprise newspaper.
He was discovered the next morning by store manager John Rodriguez who says the man told him he was trying to fix the door.
"I happened to walk in and he was there," he said. "I saw that little head sticking out."
Mr Rodriguez called the police who charged the man, after taking him to hospital to be checked for a large bruise on the back of his head.
