Is that a guitar in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

The guitar-shaped bulge in Morgan Conatser’s clothing tipped off a music store owner that there might be a crime in progress. Clifton Lovell, owner of Guitars and Cadillacs on U.S. Highway 71 in De Queen, was talking with a customer last week when he saw Conatser, 29, walking out of the store.

“I saw him walking out to his pickup truck and the bulges in his leather jacket. I said, ‘Hey what have you got there,'” Clifton Lovell said.

He said Conatser, 29, replied, “Nothing.”

Lovell pointed toward the unnatural shapes in Conatser’s jacket and pants and said, “You’ve got something.”

Conatser then removed a solid body electric guitar from his pants leg and from underneath his jacket.

“The neck of the guitar was almost down to his knee and the back of the guitar was almost up to his neck. It wasn’t hard to spot. There was no way he could sit down or get into the pickup,” Lovell said.

A Croatian man escaped almost unhurt after crashing 700ft down the side of a canyon in his car and landing in a tree. Cedo Jerbic was left with only a few bruised ribs after losing control of his Skoda Octavia on the Velebit mountain, driving off the road into a canyon. His car hit the rock wall of the deep gully twice before getting caught in the branches of a tree on the canyon floor 700ft below.

Jerbic used his mobile phone to call rescue services who pulled him out of the car. Doctors who examined him said that apart from bruising to his chest he was unhurt.

Jerbic told them that he had been wearing his seatbelt and during the fall the car’s airbags had inflated, protecting him from serious injury.

Nap break—hanging outside the 20th floor

A window cleaner fell asleep on the job – while working on the 20th floor of a US skyscraper.

Passers-by in Nashville, Tennessee, called the fire department after noticing the man was not moving. Assistant Fire Chief Lee Bergeron told the Tennessean it “looked like he just fell asleep”. The man came to after firefighters tugged on his ropes, then held up a sign from inside the window to get his attention.

The window cleaner lowered himself to the pavement, where he walked over to an ambulance to be examined by paramedics.

[A witness] who watched the man for 30 minutes before fire engines arrived, said: “I figured he had just either passed out or maybe he had fallen asleep. Its sunny and warm up there, and theres no wind.”
