Darwin Award Nominee: Teenager Gets Locked Out, Tries Climbing Down Chimney

December 3rd, 2014

This Arizona teenager, doing his best Santa Claus impersonation, tried climbing down the chimney when he was locked out of his home.

An Arizona teenager locked out of his house Tuesday night turned to the home’s chimney to get back inside — with disastrous results.

The 13-year old from Scottsdale took an extension cord and tied it to a vent and then went down chimney. He got stuck in the flue.

The boy still had his cell phone and was able to call 911 for help.

Rescuers were able to bring the teen out of the chimney safely.

The Darwin Award committee will take this nomination under advisement.
