Boy Stuck In Chimney For 8 Hours - Tried To Retrieve Football
<snip>

Santa Claus he's not.

A teenage Orange boy was plucked from the chimney of a park facility early Tuesday, more than eight hours after his ill-fated pursuit of a wayward football, police and fire officials said.

The 14-year-old, whom authorities declined to identify, descended feet-first into the chimney of a Hart Park recreation building about 9 p.m. Monday to retrieve the ball that had somehow fallen in, said police Sgt. Dave Hill.

Police were alerted by a passing motorist to screams for help coming from the park shortly after 4:45 a.m. Tuesday, authorities said.

Following the voice to the recreation building's roof, officers found the cold and disoriented boy clutching the football. They called firefighters for assistance.
