A customer looking for some bolts in a New York City hardware store was accidently locked inside for almost an hour, according to a report by the New York Daily News.
Mike Brennan, a 36-year-old elevator mechanic, was shopping at Brooklyn Hardware when a worker rolled down the front security gate around 1 p.m. After searching through the locked and empty store, Brennan first tried to find a phone number for the owner. Then he called 911.
A police officer called him back, and eventually Brennan was freed when the store worker, who closed the shop to attend Friday prayers at a local Mosque, showed up with the keys.
