85-year-old diabetic man in Hyderabad accidentally locked in bank

A bank security guard in Hyderabad accidentally locked an 85-year-old man in the locker room. The incident erupted when the man’s panicked family members filed a complaint with the police. When the old man was rescued the next morning, he was in shock. According to a report by India Today, V Krishna Reddy, a resident of Jubilee Hills, had gone to the Union Bank branch in Banjara Hills around 4 p.m. to retrieve valuables from the locker room. He didn’t realize it was closing time.

Bank staff also failed to search the premises thoroughly before closing the bank. Reddy, who suffers from diabetes and other illnesses, was forced to spend the night in the small room. Once rescued, he was transferred to hospital.

A Times of India report said Reddy did not tell his family members that he was going to the bank. He reached the bank on foot and hadn’t taken his cell phone. Police found him after checking CCTV footage outside the bank. While he was spotted entering, he was not seen leaving the bank. Being a diabetic patient, the octogenarian struggled to survive the night. Police said they would register a complaint against the bank if the family lodged a complaint.

Last year, a missing American man was rescued by police after spending 17 nights in the Oregon wilderness. Harry Burleigh’s wife filed her missing report on the evening of May 7, after he failed to return from a camping trip in the Toketee area. Following her complaint, Douglas County Search and Rescue launched a full-scale search operation the next day. At first the police could only find Harry’s car and a trail leading to Twin Lakes.
