The police reports that the man had locked himself in the back of his own car at Bjørnfjell east of Narvik.
Operations Manager Lars Halvorsen tells VG that the man in his 30s is said to have gone to sleep in his car, but woke up to the fact that he was locked inside the trunk.
– Had little air and felt bad
The man called the police when there was little air left in the car.
– He spoke poor English. Eventually we realized that he was locked up, but not where he was. He gave the impression that he had little air and felt bad. Then we got a call from the Finnish police and set up a telephone conference, Halvorsen explains.
– A theory is that the man has gone free of electricity
After locating the man, the Home Guard’s border patrol was sent out and the man was locked out, who was relieved and happy to be able to breathe fresh air again. Police are unsure how the man locked himself in.
– A theory is that the man went free of electricity with the car key so that he could not open the car, pier Halvorsen to VG.
