A homeowner in Southern California woke one night to the sound of his ex-girlfriend yelling his name. He flipped on the yard’s floodlights and saw nothing. Having ended the relationship on difficult terms, he assumed she was hiding or playing a prank, or that he was hearing things. He went back to bed.
But as he dozed off, he heard his name again. Marching through the house and preparing for a confrontation, the homeowner tried to find out where the sound was coming from. He traced the woman’s voice not to his back yard, but the living room. There, the name-calling got louder. And clearer. He told me how it slowly dawned on him:
‘She’s... stuck in the chimney.’
“After attempting a rescue with a house ladder, the man called 911. Firefighters spent two hours completing the rescue—a slow, methodical operation that involved carefully breaking a large hole in the face of the chimney to extract the woman.
THE RESOLUTION: Farmers covered the cost of repairing damages to the chimney. No word on whether the relationship has been repaired.
