    I should have specified, "with pictures, though absolutely none of bodies in chimneys, at the link."

    I am sure that I have read a similar story to this based in the US, maybe in a bank

    It's so hard to get good chimney shots! Where is Annie Leibowitz when we need her?

    At least one, maybe more, such incidents received the infamous Darwin Award.

    One that comes to mind was a burglar who tried to gain entry to a commercial establishment by wiggling down the air vent. He got stuck in a position where he couldn't breathe and suffocated.

    And we had a thread here at WS about a doctor who tried to break into her boyfriend's house through the chimney and suffocated herself.

    (Actually, when searching for the link above I found several other threads on corpses stuck in chimneys.)

    I blame Santa Claus. People see him doing it and figure out if Santa can do it so can I, I'm much thinner than him. But they don't know that chimneys expand from the inside at Christmas time.
