God Bless this fella, he was seriously concerned.


The Heerlein family in Austin had decked out their home as a tribute to "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," complete with a mannequin dressed as Chevy Chase charter Clark Griswold hanging from the roof. In the movie, Griswold suffered a mishap putting up Christmas lights.

But the mannequin hung by Chris Heerlein was apparently a little too realistic, startling a passerby last week who panicked and tried to save the Griswold stand-in -- and called 911

Too bad a good samaritan now feels like a dumbass. I applaud his effort.

Nice house too.

I hope he doesn't feel like a dumbass and had a good laugh after the fact.

He'll be famous in Austin now.

No,
I don't think he's whacked out nor over medicated. I suspect he's a fun-lovin Dave Chappelle-like fellow. Maybe, he thought he could make a buck off the deal. Sounds like he might. He could have thought it was real, then rolled with. Possibly think he was on a camera show like those Dateline-Nightline things.

Whatever the true story is, it made for a great Holiday news piece. I got a laugh from it and I hope others did too.

The homeowner gave the rescuer (a retired veteran) a gift card for his selfless act of bravery.

Nice story.
