Drunk Man Rescued From Sydney Opera House Roof After 'Looking For His Wallet' (VIDEO)

A drunk man has been rescued from the roof of the Sydney Opera House, apparently after going looking for his wallet.

Police said it was not some form of protest, simply an intoxicated gent who had strayed.

Marek Kopias told news.com.au: "He was yelling out ‘where’s my wallet?’ Pulled a beer out of his pants and has been pacing up and down."

The man was on the roof for around an hour before police managed to coax him down.
