An Italian guy was rescued after being trapped in a collapsed tunnel near the Vatican; police believe he may have been attempting to rob a nearby bank.
Firefighters spent eight hours pulling him out from beneath a road, and he is currently recuperating in a hospital.
The police have arrested him and another man on suspicion of “resisting a public authority,” so he may have more difficulties to overcome.
The police think he may have been in on a bank robbery plot.
One theory is that they are robbers, although the investigation is ongoing, a police spokesman told the AFP.
They were arrested for vandalizing public property as well.
Given that the tunnel was discovered next to a bank just before the 15 August long weekend—when most of the city empties—local media feel the purpose is obvious.
The headline in Italy’s Corriere della Sera read, “The hole gang.”
