BERLIN (AFP) - German police rescued a man who had been trapped for more than three days in handcuffs in an apparent "autoerotic accident", a spokesman said Thursday.

The spokesman for the police in the southern city of Munich told AFP that a neighbour concerned about the whereabouts of the 57-year-old man had contacted the authorities late Tuesday.

When the officers arrived at the home in the upscale Schwabing district and rang the bell, there was no answer and three days' newspapers were lying in front the door.

Through the mail slot, they saw a light was on in the flat and could hear "a faint, woozy murmur".
