Denver, CO [PP] -- Police and paramedics responded to what had to be their most unusual kidnapping case. A man who had not opened his refrigerator door in more than two years had the shock of his life. When he finally got around to opening the refrigerator, giant tentacles allegedly pulled him in. Luckily for him, he had his cell phone and was able to call 911. According to the 911 dispatcher, he was unable to finish the call.
According to the dispatcher, "He said something about being held captive by his refrigerator and something choking him. Before I could get him to calm down, he started sounding like he was gasping for air, and then the line went silent."
Police, fire rescue, and paramedics reached the scene. The man was found cyanotic, but he was revived after the police fired their tasers into the tentacles which were protruding from the open refrigerator and the paramedics started administering CPR and oxygen.
Lt. Ken Johnson joked, "We told this mass in the refrigerator to freeze. When it failed to respond to our commands, we tasered it. The refrigerator will certainly be taken in as evidence."
Neighbors heard about the ordeal and had gotten him a replacement refrigerator.
Chrissy Jones, one of his neighbors, says, "We asked the hardware store for a refrigerator that doesn't come with tentacles."
The man is doing much better now and may have learned a valuable lesson.
"I believe I will be cleaning my new refrigerator much more often from now on."
