It appears Santa might've come to Midtown about a month late. However, firefighters didn't receive any presents they wanted.
Instead, they had to rescue a man who ended up 10 feet down in a building's chimney in northeast Atlanta on Saturday morning, Atlanta Fire Rescue spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford told Channel 2 Action News.
He said it began as an Atlanta police incident, where the man was running around on top of a roof on Crescent Avenue.
Atlanta police told AJC.com he was threatening to jump from the roof before he wedged himself inside the chimney. Firefighters had to breach a wall in the attic to get inside and rescue him, Stafford said.

Police said he was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injures. Charges are pending.
