Naked Iowa man hides, gets stuck in chimney

ODD Naked Chimney Man

Lt. Tom Fransen, of the Carroll County, Iowa, Sheriff's office, shines a flashlight into a chimney at Carroll Redemption Center, in Carroll, Iowa, where Jordan Kajewski, 29, was stuck. Kajewksi crawled into the chimney during the night of May 17, 2016, and was rescued the following day. He was naked and covered in soot, though he had his clothes with him. Kajewski was charged with trespassing. (Jared Strong/Carroll Daily Times Herald via AP)

This story is out of Carroll, Iowa. Carrie Sapp teased her husband, Brad, about being afraid of ghosts when he said he heard someone whisper "get out of here" while he was sorting cans at his Iowa recycling business.

It was her turn eight hours later, though when it turned out to be a man yelling for help from the Carroll Redemption Center's chimney.

Carrie Sapp heard the man say, "I was playing hide-and-seek with my cousin. ... Don't call the cops!"

But they were called, as were firefighters, who eventually hammered a hole in the chimney before getting 29-year-old Jordan Kajewski out of it.

He was naked and covered in soot, though he had his clothes with him.

Kajewski was charged with trespassing. Beware of cramped quarters.
