Stephen: Two elderly men escape nursing home to attend metal festival
Two elderly men snuck out of their nursing home in Germany this past Friday to attend one of the largest heavy metal festivals in the world. According to the German news publication Deutsche Well, police found the men at 3 a.m. around 25 miles away from their nursing home at Wacken Open Air festival after workers at the home reported them missing. Apparently, they walked and used public transit to make their getaway. The men were “disoriented and dazed,” but “reluctant to go home.” Authorities say the men were examined at a medical tent on the festival site, then set back to their nursing home by taxi at 6:30 a.m with a police escort following them. Some of the bands that performed at this year’s festival include Judas Priest, Arch Enemy and Cannibal Corpse.
