A woman has been rescued and then arrested after getting stuck in the chimney of a house of a man she reportedly met online.
Firefighters in Ventura County, California, who responded to a report from a neighbour of a woman crying, had to chisel away much of the chimney and lubricate it with washing up soap to free Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa.
The 30-year-old was arrested on suspicion of illegal entry and giving false information to police, according to the Ventura County Star.
Police say she knows the owner of the home in Thousand Oaks, who was not there at the time, but they did not elaborate further.
However, media reports say she had met the man online and had been on a number of dates with him.
