Alarm clock re­moved from vent af­ter 14 years

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

ROSS, Pa. — A heat­ing con­trac­tor has re­moved a beep­ing alarm clock that’s been in­side a Penn­syl­va­nia fam­ily’s wall vent for nearly 14 years. Keith An­dreen and Dawn Michelucci of Low-Cost Heat­ing and Air Con­di­tion­ing saw the story on KDKA-TV last month, so they went to the Ross Town­ship home and re­moved the clock this week. Home­owner Jerry Lynn tells KDKA he tied the bat­tery­op­er­ated clock to a string in Septem­ber 2004 and low­ered it in­side the wall so the beep­ing alarm would pin­point the spot he needed to drill for a TV cable.

But the clock fell off the string and has been beep­ing at 6:50 p.m. or 7:50 p.m. each day, de­pend­ing on whether it’s Day­light Sav­ings Time. The con­trac­tors re­moved the clock through a garage vent.
