A 20-stone drinker was rescued after falling off a 12 ft wall – but slept through the entire 30 minute operation by fire crews, reported Mirror. 

The 6ft man, in his 30s, was even heard snoring as he was lifted up on a board and taken to hospital for a check-up and miraculously he escaped without any injury.

Firefighter Shane Byrne said, “It was amazing, he didn’t open his eyes the whole time and just carried on snoring during the rescue which took around half an hour.

“A male passer by raised the alarm and when we got there we had to cut down a number of trees and force a really old iron gate open.
