Daredevil rescued on climb to Hove flat after getting locked out.
12:20pm Tuesday 9th July 2013 in News
A daredevil who attempted to climb up the outside of a building to get into his flat had to be rescued by firefighters.
The man attempted to climb up to his third-floor flat in Gwydyr Mansions in Holland Road, Hove, at just after 7.15pm on Sunday after locking himself out.
However the man was only able to make it up to the second floor before having to find sanctuary on a window sill while firefighters came to rescue him.
Fire crews from Hove used an aerial ladder platform to rescue the man in an operation that lasted about ten minutes.
The man, who didn’t want to reveal his identity, told The Argus: “I hadn’t been drinking or anything, I was just simply locked out of my flat.
“I thought it would be a good idea to try to climb up but then I realised I was higher than I would have liked.
“I don’t really want to appear in the paper telling everyone what a silly thing I’ve done, so it’s best I keep my name secret.
“But I’m sure there are people who have done similar things before.”
