Fresno boy gets stuck in chimney

A Fresno boy got stuck in the chimney of his family home after attempting to get inside the house to let in his family who had locked themselves out."I told him 'No, he's going to get stuck.' He did it anyway," said his father.

11-year old Matthew McCammon was trapped about three-quarters of the way down the chimney. Fire crews struggled to pull him from the chimney for over 90 minutes. They eventually freed him by blowing out the back of the chimney with an air chisel.

McCammon was being checked out at a local hospital Tuesday and was expected to be fine.
