CHICAGO -- This guy picked a bad place for a nap.

A man sleeping on an overhead platform at the Metra Electric Van Buren station in Chicago, Illinois rolled over and off the platform, then got stuck on top of a plastic canopy Tuesday morning, police said.

It did not appear the man suffered serious injuries, but the power was shut off on the tracks to get him down.

Firefighters used a knife to cut some of the plastic roofing away before pulling the man down.
