The view from the hospital in southern Italy is so good that one man faked a life-threatening illness to get himself inside to watch a sold-out game. It didn't work — security kicked him out.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. In the city of Crotone in southern Italy, the soccer stadium is next to a hospital. And during big games, the windows of the hospital offer great views of all the action. So you might see doctors, nurses, patients up there and, the other night, a dude who was none of the above. He faked a life-threatening illness to get himself inside to watch the sold-out game - didn't work. Security kicked him out, perhaps suggesting some acting lessons. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
