75-year-old Cleveland man gets trapped in car for 13 hours after power locks fail
A 75-year-old Cleveland man had a harrowing experience last month when his car's electrical system conked out and he was trapped inside for over 13 hours, unaware that he could've freed himself within seconds.
Peter Pyros got into the 2006 Cadillac XLR that was parked in his garage on Aug. 31, but found that it was dead when he tried to start it.
Instead of a lever, the XLR has an electronic push button door release which didn't work without power. Neither did the windows, roof or horn.
