Drunken Caper Has A Ferry-Tale Ending
A drunken 78-year-old Swede stole a dinghy after a night out in the Danish town of Helsingor and tried to row back to Sweden, but fell asleep halfway. When he couldn’t pay for the ferry from Helsingor to Helsingborg in Sweden, he decided to row the five kilometres across the strait of Oresund that separates the two. Danish police later found him out at sea, still asleep – in one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.
