Tanked-up teen has a bad wedgie

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BOOZED-UP Ge­orge Her­rera got stuck in a chim­ney try­ing to sneak into his house and avoid a bol­lock­ing from his par­ents.

The 18-year-old stu­dent had been out later than he was al­lowed and de­cided the best way to es­cape pun­ish­ment was to make like Fa­ther Christ­mas.

So he climbed up onto the roof of the two-storey fam­ily home and tried to slide down the chute.

But the 5ft 10in Her­rera got wedged in the fi­nal third and had to be res­cued by fire­fight­ers.

Art Ray, spokesman for Cal­i­for­nia’s Stock­ton Fire Depart­ment, said: “When we got to scene the fam­ily told us he was at­tempt­ing to sneak back in and had got stuck.

“We could see his feet stick­ing out when we ar­rived – he’d been there for about 90 min­utes.

“We were able to get him out in about 15 min­utes.”
