Man rescued from air conditioner vent

A man was rescued dusty but alive after he was trapped nearly 15 hours in an air conditioning vent in Englewood.

Englewood police said they responded to calls for help yesterday from the roof of the Charles Hay World School, where they discovered a man trapped 30 feet down the vent.  Firefighters had to cut open the vent to pull him out.

The man is 28 years old, but was not identified.  He told police he stole a friend's purse Monday night and threw it onto the roof. When he climbed onto the roof to get the purse, he fell into the vent and became stuck, according to the Denver Post.
