The story making social networks rounds of 2 senior males leaving their retirement community to go to Germany’s biggest heavy metal celebration appeared too great to be real. And, alas, it was.
Itzehoe cops spokesperson Peter Berndt stated Tuesday the 2 guys were really 58 and 59 and left a house for individuals with psychological health concerns to celebration Friday night in the town of Wacken, near the eponymous celebration.
Festival-goers called authorities after discovering the 2 “defenseless, inebriated and disoriented” waiting on a bus house at a primary street stop after the buses had actually stopped performing at 3 a.m. Saturday.
Police brought them to a first-aid station and after that later on in the early morning sent them house in a taxi organized by the care house about 20 miles away.
