Two Elderly Men Sneak Out of Nursing Home, Found at World's Biggest Metal Festival
Once a metalhead, always a metalhead eh?
Aong the swathes of metal heads is an odd pair of two elderly men. These two, apparently fled from their nursing home to well, rock out.
According to New York Post, the authorities said the pair went missing from their retirement home in Dithmarscher, a rural district in Schleswig-Holstein, and seemed to have traveled about 25 miles, on foot and by public transport to make it to the metal fest.
The duo were found at the festival at 3am in a state that a police spokesperson described as "disoriented and dazed". And to nobody's surprise, they did not want to leave.
“They were then taken to the medical tent on the festival site and were sent back by taxi at around 6:30 a.m,” Peter Berndt, a spokesman for the Itzehoe police department, told The Washington Post on Monday. “We had to explain to them why they had to go home — but in the end, they went back voluntarily.”
A photo showing other elderly people rocking out at the festival was posted on Twitter.
Wacken Open Air responded: “Seriously? How cool is that, please?”
Then, the festival added in English: “You're never too old too rock.”
„Assisted wacken. No discrimination of seniors“
Of course not, we might add. Because you’re never too old too rock. #wacken #metalfamily #respect #buildingbridges https://t.co/szE7iQ7BWY
