Germans flee into container after wild boar scare

BERLIN - BERLIN (AP) — German police have rescued four frozen walkers who called up from a waste container begging to be saved from roving wild boars. Police in Darmstadt, south of Frankfurt, said they received an emergency call at nearly 3 a.m. Sunday from a man who said he and three companions had fled into the container after being surprised by a group of boars during a nighttime walk in the woods. He said they didn't dare to emerge.

A police statement Monday said that a patrol found the four shivering in the metal container and escorted them from the scene.

The boars already had disappeared.
