Mt. Vernon EMTs Remove “Crackhead” from Wall


The filmmaking is poor and doesn’t build the scene is a satisfying way, but some things are interesting just because they happened. Here Mt. Vernon, New York emergency medical, police, and fire department personnel extract a man from the wall of an apartment. The poster claims the man is his upstairs neighbor, who went in there to smoke crack, though why someone would smoke in a wall when he has an apartment, we can’t figure out. The public servants break through the sheetrock of a closet and call out, “Come to the light, Gollum!” then hustle the man, clad only in festive shorts, out of the apartment and (presumably) to a waiting cop car. Now that’s one more thing you can add to your “I saw this guy once” list.
