Here’s a good reason why online dating might not be for you.
California native Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa was found trapped inside the chimney of a man she went on several dates with after meeting on an online dating site. The 30-year-old was discovered by a bystander around 5:45 a.m. on Sunday in Thousand Oaks. Nunez-Figueroa was said to be trapped in the brick chimney for over two hours, eight feet from the top.
A woman accused of illegally entering the Thousand Oaks home of a man she went on multiple dates with was arrested Sunday after firefighters used jackhammers to partially dismantle a brick chimney she had become trapped inside.
The county Fire Department’s urban search and rescue team was called to the scene. Photospostedon Twitter by the department showed firefighters on the roof of the house as they worked to reach the woman, who was conscious during the rescue.
The flue was lubricated with dish soap before she was lifted out of the chimney, placed in a stokes basked and hoisted from the roof by a ladder truck, according to VCFD Capt. Mike Lindbery.
Officials aren’t clear of her intentions for breaking into the man’s home. After an evaluation at a local hospital, Nunez-Figueroa was arrested and charged with allegedly illegally entering a residence and providing false information to a police officer.
The lucky guy – who wished not to be identified – says he met the woman online and they went on six dates. He suggested to other online daters to be careful of the people they meet through the interwebs.
“Before you have somebody come in your house really check them out … really give it some time before you let somebody in, because they might want to stay,” he told reporters.
Let’s hope both parties find love another, safer, way.
