A drunk student fell through someone’s roof after a night out

Nobody really knows why


A student from Plymouth known only as Dave fell through a couples roof after a night out.

And who’s footing the bill? Chris and Lou Hepper, the couple who were asleep in their house when it happened.

They woke up to find Dave, who they’d never seen before, had fallen 10ft from their garden wall and through their garage roof. He was dazed, confused and bloodied, with a gash on his face.

They called the ambulance but Dave walked off because he just “wanted to go home”

But they have now released images on social media they took of the intruder before he fled in a bid to track him down.

Lou  said: “He was very intoxicated. We couldn’t really understand what he was saying, but he said he had been on a night out and couldn’t remember how he had ended up on our garage floor.

“There’s no roof on it at the moment, but it is full of old glass because the shop below is being converted into a flat and so the rubbish is all being chucked in there.

“There was just blood everywhere and he was covered in glass. We rang the ambulance just before 2am and it still wasn’t there at 3am, which is why he went.

“There wasn’t anything we could do; I think he had just had enough.”

The couple found out from speaking to Dave that he was a student who had been on a night out.

Lou posted a picture of the man on her Facebook page in a bid to try and find out who he is.

The graphic photo clearly shows the extent of the man’s injuries, and the amount of glass that was smashed by the fall.

Lou added: “There was no other way into the garage so he must have fallen the eight to 10ft drop from the garden wall.

“He told us he lived behind the back of the Coop in the Cattedown area. We think he had just lost his way.

“All we want to know is if he is alright.”
