    Indiana Man Finds Burglar Crushed by 900-Pound Safe in His Home

    Police said an Indiana man found an intruder dead in his home—trapped under his family’s 900-pound safe.

    Officials at the Marion Police Department said in a statement that George Hollingsworth found the body of the would-be burglar on Wednesday, March 13, “lying underneath an antique floor safe.”

    Hollingsworth made the grisly discovery a day after he first reported the break-in to police.

    “My mind couldn’t comprehend it. This can’t be real. It’s like some strange tale,” the man told Fox59.

    I’m Thinking — He’s Dead’

    The homeowner was checking his property—located about 70 miles north of Indianapolis—to determine what had been stolen after the robbery and was “cleaning the clutter in his garage.” That’s when Hollingsworth discovered his safe—which was suspended by a floor jack—had been knocked over.

    “Upon further inspection Mr. Hollingsworth found a body lying underneath the safe,” the police said.

    “I came in and told my wife, ‘I think we’ve got a dead body out there.’ She thought I was kidding,” said Hollingsworth, according to Fox59.

    The man’s wife called 911.

    “The officer walked in and said, ‘Buddy. Hey buddy,'” said Hollingsworth. “I’m thinking he’s dead. Come on now.”

    The fire department had to be called to lift the safe and remove the man’s body, according to the police.

    Hollingsworth said even if the burglar had succeeded in stealing the massive safe, it would have been pointless.

    “There’s nothing in it. It’s empty. It’s just one my dad had,” he said. “What a horrible way to die,” he added, according to Fox59.

    The identity of the deceased man has not been released, pending notification of family members, the Indianapolis Star reported.

    Edit.... please move to the lounge. I was thinking it was a gun safe and therefore gun related. But there is no mention of it being a gun safe in the article.

    Was the safe made by Acme?

    This belongs in the 'What made me smile today' thread.

    On second thought, maybe he's not dead.
    Maybe he's just DEPRESSED.
