Man Found Naked In Wall Of Landmark Theatre, Rescued By Syracuse Firefighters
The questions are how did he get into the wall and why was he naked?
Syracuse Police had to rescue a naked man from inside of a wall of the Landmark Theatre Friday morning.
According to Syracuse.com, the man had been stuck there for days.
An employee at the Landmark heard the man calling for help at around 7:30 this morning and called 911.
The Theatre’s Executive Director, Mike Intaglietta, says the man had been seen walking around the theater earlier in the week and employees thought he had left the building.
Syracuse Deputy Fire Chief John Kane says the man apparently got into a crawl space in the building and hid there for two days.
Kane said the man eventually fell into a space in the wall of the men’s bathroom and became trapped.
Firefighters drilled a hole in the wall and used a fiber-optic camera to determine his exact location and how to best extricate him.
Crews were then able to free the individual after carefully cutting through several layers of drywall and structural clay tile.
Police says the 39-year man had no visible injuries and was taken to Upstate University Hospital for evaluation.
So far, no criminal charges have been filed against the man.
The 3,000 seat Landmark Theatre opened on February 18, 1928.
The Landmark was originally known as Loew's State Theater before being renamed the Landmark in 1974.
