Man wanders in to Oblivion tunnel at Alton Towers

The Oblivion ride at Alton Towers had to be closed after a man entered a prohibited area and needed rescuing. The ride was stopped and the surrounding area cordoned off while three fire crews rescued the man.

Well, at least he was rescued and not hit by a train.

"Wandered into" just doesn't seem accurate when he really had to CLIMB down into that location...
