Jaw dropping video footage shows the moment a naked suspected burglar was rescued from a chimney he got stuck inside.
The undressed man could be heard rambling inaudibility after being helped out of the cavity at a home in Culver City, California, on Sunday.
He is said to have been spotted trying to burglarize an apartment – while naked – by a concerned neighbor, who called police.
That prompted the suspect to flee, then climb into the chimney of a nearby home, where he got stuck.
Neighbors told KABC how they could hear the man’s voice coming from the chimney while he was stuck.
Witness Portia Wofford said: ‘He also wanted to know if I believed in a higher power because he was telling his story that he’s been drugged, drugs have been laced, he has no clothes on.’
Police and firefighters were eventually able to free the man from the chimney without injuring him.
They used a towel to cover the man’s modesty.
He has been arrested, although it is still unclear what, if any, charges he may now face.
