Woman Stuck in Chimney Rescued, Then Arrested (Video)

By    |   Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 05:37 AM

Responding to neighbors' reports of a woman crying for help, police found a woman stuck in the chimney of a Southern California house. After she was rescued, 30-year-old Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa was charged with illegal entry.

The Associated Press reported Ventura County fire Capt. Ron Oatman as saying firefighters had to chisel away much of the chimney and lubricate it with dish soap Sunday to free Nunez-Figueroa.



She was discovered at 5:45 a.m. and it took nearly three hours to free her.

The Ventura County Star reported Nunez-Figueroa was arrested on suspicion of illegal entry and giving false information to police.

Police say Nunez-Figueroa knows the owner of the two-story home in Thousand Oaks, who wasn't home at the time. There were reports the two had dated.

Nunez-Figueroa had no clear injuries but was taken to a hospital for evaluation. Police didn't know if she'd hired an attorney, and no phone listing for her could be found.

Oatman says firefighters destroyed the chimney and damaged the roof.
