Subject: Student wakes up in 150ft crane cab

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/22/09 at 8:55 am

An Austrian student woke up in the cab of a 150-foot-high crane after a night boozing with friends.

Stefan Hohenwart, 28, told police he had no idea how he got up there when they found him after construction workers called them in Graz.

Officers said he was driven home and would face no charges since he had not caused any damage.

A police spokesman said: "The construction workers turned up to start in the morning and the crane operator got quite a surprise when he went up and found the student snoring away in his cab.

"When our officers got there and get the man down he swore he had no idea how he got up there and just remembers leaving the pub and feeling very tired."

The spokesman added: "Going up 150 feet into the crane cab can be a risky undertaking at the best of times, let alone after a heavy drinking session. This man was very lucky he got up there safely."
