An elderly man living in a tent became trapped after last weekend’s snowfall. 

In a media release from VicPD, officers were called by a concerned person to a Fernwood residence on the morning of Sunday, February 14th.

When officers arrived, they discovered the elderly man trapped inside a tent in a Fernwood resident’s yard.

They were able to quickly dig him out safely from the collapsed tent.

Thankfully, the man, who is in his eighties was unharmed and has been living in the Fernwood residents yard for the past year.

“Officers spent an extended period of time with him to ensure that he was in a safe environment and had the necessary resources for the weather,” VicPD said in a release.

Police report that the man is happy with his unorthodox living arrangement.
