NEW CANAAN, Conn. (AP) -- A 9-year-old Connecticut girl who climbed to the roof of her house and attempted to crawl back inside
through the chimney has been rescued after getting stuck.
Assistant Fire Chief Jack Hennessey says the girl climbed up a house painter's ladder Wednesday morning, walked across the roof
and tried to climb down the chimney.
She almost made it to the fireplace before getting stuck in the flue at about 6:30 a.m. Family members heard her cries for help and called rescue workers, who tried to take apart the flue.
Hennessey said after about 20 minutes, the girl was able to wiggle herself down through the hole and out the fireplace.
She was not injured.
