Caught Between Bricks in a Hard Place

November 14, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A man who tried to get into his mother-in-law's house in Fort Worth after she forgot her keys got stuck and was rescued by firefighters.

Mark Vaughn, 35, was wedged in the chimney for about an hour before rescuers were able to pull him feet first from a hole knocked in the side.

He acknowledged he learned a lesson or two: "Listen to your mother-in-law. Don't climb down chimneys. And I probably need to lose weight."
