An elderly German man who wanted to seal off the entrance to his cellar accidentally bricked himself into the room instead. Police said the man became aware of his mistake after the work was complete. After camping out in the cellar for a few days, the man decided to free himself by knocking down a wall. Instead of demolishing the wall he had just completed, the man decided to knock down the wall into his neighbor’s basement instead. The neighbor’s had been at odds for some time, so they called the police when the man next door began they heard drilling on the backside of the wall. Police said they were waiting for the man when he freed himself, and described the elderly man’s actions as “pretty stupid.”
