The owner of a Virginia Beach restaurant had an unexpected item on the menu: a man dangling from an exhaust vent over the kitchen stove.
Harold Owens had to delay his restaurant's opening Saturday when he arrived and found the trapped intruder's legs dangling from the exhaust vent.
The fire department was called to free the man from the 18-by-18-inch duct.
The Virginian-Pilot reports the man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a shoulder injury. Investigators believe the former employee of Harold's Restaurant was attempting to enter the restaurant.
