Authorities in Florida said a man who fell through the ceiling of a Popeyes eatery was able to open a safe after hours of prying and striking.

The Jacksonville County Sheriff's Office shared video on YouTube of the clumsy crook falling from the ceiling of the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Jacksonville and ending up on his backside.

The man does not appear seriously injured and spends "several hours" prying and striking his way into the eatery's safe.

The post said the man was eventually able to open the safe and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
