I thought I had a problem...

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German man who had been drinking heavily at Munich's Oktoberfest beer festival got stuck in a chimney for 12 hours while trying to climb into a friend's apartment, police said on Friday. After finding his friend was not at home, the 27-year-old climbed on to the roof of a neighboring building at about 2 a.m. (1:00 a.m. British time) on Thursday and headed for what he thought was a gap in the wall between the two houses.

He found himself sliding almost 30 meters (98 feet) head first into a chimney, a spokesman for Munich police said.

An 82-year-old janitor from the hotel next door eventually heard the man's calls for help and he was rescued at around 2 p.m. by fire brigade officers who knocked a hole into the side of the chimney to liberate him, the spokesman said.

He had managed to turn around and had removed his clothes to try to help him squeeze back up.

"Miraculously, he was only slightly injured in the fall, sustaining just grazes and bruising," police said. The man was taken by helicopter to the hospital, where he is being treated for hypothermia, they added.


Promise me that if any of you find me drunk and naked in your chimney you'll set up an intervention right away.

wasn't there a case of some guy that wanted to surprise his kids by dressing up as Santa Claus and coming down the chimney on christmas morning? IIRC, he fell, broke his neck and got lodged inside the chimney, and they couldn't find him for 2-3 weeks....apparently the smell got strong enough eventually....

Life isn't fair. All you can do is try to make it unfair in your favor.
