If one of your grandparents decided to escape from the nursing home, you might expect to find them out fishing on the lake or maybe in a bingo hall, but would you ever expect to look for them at the World's Biggest Heavy Metal Festival?

Course not, but that's exactly where two elderly men were found around 3:00 am Saturday after they'd busted out of their nursing home in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

According to usmagazine.com, the staff at this nursing home in Germany went in to high alert after discovering late Friday night that a couple patients were missing.

They called local police who discovered the somewhat "disoriented and dazed" elderly patients at the Wacken Open Air festival.  And this was real "heavy metal" with featured artists at this year's festival including Judas Priest, Vince Neil and hundreds of other bands.

The men were reluctant to leave the festival and had to be escorted back to their nursing home in a taxi and a patrol car.


It really makes you wonder if they went to the festival intentionally, or if they just were happen to be around a bunch of younger people and they liked the music.
