    Once they’d established a strategy, crews gently hoisted the woman back up the chimney and transported her via stretcher to a waiting ambulance.

    San Diego Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tommy Charpentier said when crews initially arrived, they confirmed the woman was stuck upside down in the flue, with her feet sticking up.

    Her head was about six feet off the ground, and she was about 10 feet from the top of the chimney, 他说.

    She was transferred to hospital, where she underwent a psychiatric evaluation

    ‘We had crews put a plan into place and started working multiple angles,’ Charpentier told OnScene.TV.

    ‘We had crews inside that were attempting to breach the wall to access her, as well as crews go to the roof of the house and use a tripod and a rope and wench system. And that’s how we ended up getting her out.

    He said that the situation is tricky because they wanted to rescue the women quickly, but did not want to compromise her safety with a rushed job.

    The extent of her injuries were unknown.
