Two elderly men 'escape' nursing home to attend German heavy metal festival

Two nursing home patients “escaped” on Friday and were found at a heavy metal festival, according to German media outlets.

The nursing home alerted police after the two went missing. They were found at 3 a.m. at the Wacken Open Air – the world’s largest heavy metal festival.

A police spokeswoman said the two men, whose exact ages were not disclosed, were “disoriented and dazed.”

Police said the two didn’t want to leave, so they helped escort them back to the nursing home.

"They obviously liked the metal festival," a police spokeswoman said.
