I was suspicious of that 55,000 tonnes figure. That's 27 and a half million 2 kg blocks. Other sites are saying 4000 tonnes were involved. And that was the whole warehouse, it didn't all land on top of him. Still, a lucky escape.

@fresco,
The article said that rescue teams using sniffer dogs rescued him. How can dogs smell him out underneath all that smelly cheese?

Another article said they used a drone to locate him, and then cut a hole in the side of the building. As far as I know, this was a distribution warehouse containing cheese blocks for supermarkets, vacuum sealed in plastic, so maybe specially trained dogs would be able to sniff him out without too much trouble.

@Tes yeux noirs,
dogs are able to distinguish between odors, as well as just detect them. Druggie smugglers always pack their coke in with coffee grounds, charcoal, or candy. Doesnt fool the better dogs in the least. They have a sense of smell as good or better than a gas chromatograph that can distinguish hundreds of different scents at the part per billion level. ( Something like meth is so damn volatile and redolent of organic va[pors that you could pack a thimble in a ton of coffee and the dogs 'd still be able to pick it out.

On the other hand, I suppose some people's idea of the way to go is to be buried under cheese. I don't eat it that often, but when I get in the mood the urge to eat more seems unstoppable.

I was at Bristol Airport (UK) once and a very charming Cocker spaniel came and sat in front of me. A police office nearby said he was trained to indicate people where he had smelled new banknotes. I showed the officer 100 euros in 10 euro notes I had just got from an ATM and he said "If you're a money launderer you must be just starting." I asked if I could pat the dog and he said it was OK.

Our little dog can be fast asleep, dead to the world--but if i make a sammich, especially with tuna, she will appear shortly after i have begun eating. Dogs have their priorities, too.

@Tes yeux noirs,
so the dog just went into his training mode eh?
It used to be(when I was a kid) that drug sniffing dogs wpuld start barking at a load of drugs. This became a distraction to the officers on the job. So the training began using body positions to indicate contraband or drugs. The dogs sniff drugs and they just sit down and stare.

@Setanta,
Five seconds after a sandwich making thought passes through my mind, my dog jumps down from our bed that he's not allowed on, and makes his way down the stairs so that he can stare at me.

I think he is telepathetic.

@Lordyaswas,
I long ago came to that conclusion. I've just thought about putting my shoes on, and the dog appears, giving me a look as though to say, "You going for a walk, Big Boy?"

@Setanta,
Lordy and Set, that's nothing.

Cats, while lying on your bed, telepathically PUT the thought "Gee, sardines sound good right now. I am going to open a can, grab a nom nom bowl and go back to the bedroom to see if anyone there wants to share." Then once you arrive, you realize you don't have a fork to eat your half, so you just dump in all in the bowl.

As every right-thinking person knows, cats is the spawn of Satan. No wonder they have demon powers.

@Lordyaswas,
I remember rolling down a hill like this in college.

Quite a lot of wine was involved, but no cheese.
