PITTSBURGH (AP) – A restaurant near the University of Pittsburgh has reopened two months after one of its walls had to be broken through to reach a student who fell into the narrow gap between the restaurant and another building.
Qdoba Mexican Grill owner Chad Brooks says the eatery offered free “Knock Out the Wall” tacos and even posted a picture of the gaping hole hanging on the restaurant wall during Monday’s re-opening.
Rescue crews broke through the wall Aug. 23 after 22-year-old Grant Birdsong became stuck. Police say he was trying to jump over the gap separating the buildings to impress a girl, but fell and became wedged between the buildings.
He faces a Nov. 14 hearing on a disorderly conduct citation filed by Pittsburgh police. His attorney didn’t immediately comment Tuesday.
