On April 1, 1979, Andreas Mihavecz, an 18-year-old bricklayer's apprentice in Austria, was mistakenly placed in a holding cell following a car accident (where he had been the passenger). Bewilderingly, he was completely forgotten about by the three police officers responsible for him. Each officer wrongly assumed that one of the others had released Mihavecz, even ignoring his concerned mother's pleas when she realized he hadn't returned home.
Mihavecz's cell was in the basement of the jail, making his cries for help unheard. To survive, he resorted to drinking condensed water from the walls and lost a staggering 53 pounds! It wasn't until 18 days later, that an officer, who had unrelated business in the basement, discovered him in shocking condition.
In the ensuing criminal trial, the three policemen pointed fingers at each other. They were ultimately fined 2,000 EUR due to a lack of conclusive evidence of criminal neglect or determining the primary culprit.
