The latest from Vancouver Island, Canada:
A man was taken to hospital in Victoria on Wednesday after he got trapped behind the pipes of a church organ while performing maintenance work.
Firefighters responded just before noon to St. John the Divine Anglican Church on Quadra Street for a report of “a person trapped in a pipe organ,” said Victoria fire Capt. Rich Sulsbury.
Trapped “in” or “behind?” Big difference.
Talk about really getting into your work …
I wonder how much damage he did to the organ.
I have a lot of sympathy for the tuner. One of the organs I play is a lovely instrument but a devil to tune, as all the pipes are contained in a very small space. The tuner has to perform convolutions to do his job!
