Two men, drunk tourists, became trapped in the Eiffel Tower in an odd incident as a result of over drinking. A specialized fireman team was dispatched to save them.
This incident caused the tower’s regular opening time of 9 AM to be delayed. However, Sete, the privately held company that operates the Eiffel Tower, claimed that they did not constitute a hazard.
He continued by saying that a criminal complaint would be made against both guys when Paris police questioned them.
This incident follows two recent bomb scares at the tower, both of which necessitated twice-daily evacuations of the monument.
According to reports, French police have also started an inquiry after receiving the phony bomb threats through posts on a gaming website. This famous Parisian monument, which stands 300 meters tall, was constructed in the 1880s. It is said to draw more than 5 million tourists each year. This implies that such occurrences won’t be handled carelessly.
Authorities in Paris further explained the situation by stating that they appeared to have become stuck as a result of their intoxication. Security personnel later found them in a location between the second and third levels that is often kept off-limits to the general public.
On Sunday night at around 10:40 PM, the inebriated visitors paid their admission costs, and according to the police, they went over barricades to get to the steps leading down from the top platform of the attraction.
Despite the fact that the tourists were questioned by the police, the accusation of trespassing on a historical or cultural site was dropped, according to the prosecutors.
Despite the fact that they don’t appear to be a threat, Sete continued by saying they will go ahead and file a complaint against the couple.
