A butcher just minutes from death after getting stuck in a freezer saved his own life by battering his way out - with a frozen black pudding, Fox News reports.
Quick-thinking Chris McCabe, 70, thought he was going to die after he got locked in his own walk-in fridge which stores meat at temperatures of -4 degrees F.
But with time running out in the freezer, which is capable of killing a man in just half an hour, he grabbed the only tool he could find: a black pudding.
He battered the lock with the frozen breakfast staple and it eventually gave way and he walked free.
'Black pudding saved my life, without a doubt,” said Chris, a father-of-four from the English county of Devon. "No one could hear me banging because [the freezer] is outside, round the back of the shop.”
