We've all been there. You're out drinking with your friends, laughing the night away, when it hits you that you're about to break curfew; God forbid you wake up your folks at such an ungodly hour. Phoenix Fire Department spokesman, Todd Keller told Arizona Republic, that a 17 year old, unidentified teen, had to be rescued from her own roof's chimney on Wednesday evening.

In fact, the poor girl was lodged right above the chimney's flue, a.k.a a pipe leading directly to a typically lit fireplace. Talk about traumatizing.

So what the hell led to the rescue? According to eye-witness, 'Yazmine', they'd returned to Yazmine's home after a late night out, to discover they'd been locked out.

And so, her friend came up with the brilliant idea to go to her home instead, and climb in through the chimney. And well, you see how that turned out...

'She was panicking,' Yazmine told local news station. 'She was, like, ‘call 911!’ She couldn’t breathe.'

Luckily, firefighters set up a tripod over the chimney and were able to hoist the soot-covered teen out, 90 horrifying minutes later.

The teen has since been evaluated and refused to be taken to the hospital.

As for her parents?

They rushed home from the movies and were - shocker, 'really mad.'

Kids, if you're reading this, don't try this at home...
