UDINE , Italy, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Authorities in Italy said an elderly man was locked inside a bank basement for three days after he became lost in the building.

Paolo Lugo, 82, mistakenly walked down the wrong flight of stairs after cashing a check Friday, leading him to a portion of the Udine facility that was unfamiliar to him, ANSA reported Tuesday.

Lugo was locked inside the bank when it closed for the weekend and eventually took a seat beside the basement boiler to await rescue. He was found Monday by a concerned relative and a bank clerk.

The octogenarian was said by authorities to be "in fairly good shape" despite his three days without food or water.
