Man Rescued, Arrested After Becoming Trapped in Vent Atop Restaurant


A man was taken into police custody after being rescued from an 18-inch ventilation shaft atop a Beverly Grove restaurant Monday.

Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters were called just after 3 p.m. to the two-story restaurant at 8367 Beverly Blvd., between La Cienega and Crescent Heights boulevards, after receiving a report of the man who was trapped feet-first in the vent, according to the department’s Brian Humphrey.

Firefighters used a high-point rope system with wrist straps to lift the man out of the vent by about 4 p.m. Paramedics at the scene reported the man suffered no injuries, and he claimed to have been trapped in the vent for as much as 24 hours.
