Vet­eran res­cues Christ­mas dis­play dummy

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS -

Ahol­i­day dis­play meant to recre­ate a scene from ‘Na­tional Lam­poon’s Christ­mas Va­ca­tion’ looked a lit­tle too real and caused a vet­eran to spring into ac­tion.

The Heer­lein fam­ily placed a dummy rep­re­sent­ing Clark Gris­wold dan­gling from the gut­ter of their Austin, Texas, home, with a lad­der tip­ping be­neath him.

A vet­eran pass­ing by thought it was the real thing and wres­tled the lad­der up while shout­ing, “Can you reach it?”

KVUE-TV re­ports that the man called po­lice, who ar­rived and ad­vised the fam­ily they were get­ting calls about the dis­play.

They have since put up a sign that says ‘Clark G is part of our Christ­mas dis­play please do not call 911’.
