Drunk student rescued from Debenhams roof

Cork city centre had to be cordoned off in the early hours of this morning as a drunken teenager climbed onto the roof of Debenhams department store.

Members of the gardaí, Cork fire brigade and security personnel were called to the scene at 2am after the 18-year-old climbed on to the roof of the building on Patrick Street.

According to The Irish Examiner, fire brigade hoists brought gardaí to the roof where they found the teenager in an extremely intoxicated condition and they brought him back down and arrested him for his own safety.

The man admitted being drunk and a source of danger, engaging in offensive conduct by climbing on to the roof, putting himself and others in grave danger and trespassing on the curtilage of the building.
