BERLIN (AP) — Firefighters in the western German town of Bocholt received an unusual distress call from a local high school on Friday after teachers were unable to open a safe containing the questions of an end-of-year exam that the students had to take.

Firefighters rushed to the scene to find the lock had jammed and proceeded to saw through the safe, the Bocholt Fire Department said.

“That way the students were able to take their exam about an hour late,” he said.

While teachers applauded the firefighters for saving the day, reaction from students was mixed.

“Some of them would probably have enjoyed a sunny day off instead,” said fire department spokesman Matthias Hanne.
