Pennsylvania Man Has Had An Alarm Clock Ringing In His Wall For The Past 13 Years

A Pennsylvania man still hasn’t gotten his wakeup call — even though an alarm clock that somehow got wedged behind a wall of his home has been going off every single day for the past 13 years.

Homeowner Jerry Lynn says he set the wheels in motion for the daily disruption himself, by dropping the clock, tied to a string, through an air vent to let him know where to punch a hole in the living room wall to pass a wire through for a TV hookup he’d planned to install. The string broke, according to Lynn’s recollection, and he didn’t think anything more of it, figuring the clock’s battery would die soon enough.

Wrong. More than a decade later, it’s still going strong: During daylight savings time it goes off at ten minutes ’til eight. And during standard time it goes off at ten minutes to seven at night. Lynn says his family has gotten used to it, and he sees no reason to go in and retrieve it. (KDKA)
