Rescuers save teen stuck in chimney
Rescuers save teen stuck in chimney

Rescuers spent hours freeing a teenager who climbed down a chimney last night and got stuck at the bottom.

ABC News reports that the 17-year-old was trying to get into a house in Gracetown but did not have his keys.

So he shimmied down the chimney about 7pm.

Friends called emergency services when the boy reached the bottom and found it was sealed, the ABC reports.

Rescuers spent hours carefully pulling the chimney apart and finally freed the man around 1am.

Authorities say the teen was not suspected of any crime or criminal intention.
