A clever Christmas decoration may have fooled one Austin man, but it showed off a sampling of genuine human kindness.
An Austin homeowner put up a mannequin hanging off the roof, like Clark Griswold in the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Apparently, it’s a little too realistic.
A veteran named Alfred walking by thought someone was in danger. The NEST camera at the door caught the whole thing.
Alfred was walking through his Austin neighborhood when he noticed what appeared to be a man in distress. He noticed the stranger hanging from the roof of his house, seemingly haven fallen while putting up Christmas decorations. Alfred approached the house, and called out to the man asking if he needed any help. He called 911 and did everything he could to adjust a nearby ladder so he could help the hanging man. What Alfred didn’t know at the time, however, was that the Heerlein family love the movie “Christmas Vacation,” and decided to decorate their home with the film in mind.
The homeowners tracked down the vet, and are working to get him something for his troubles, to show no hard feelings and thank him for being ready to help someone.
