DENVER — A man fell 40 feet down a chimney of a loft building while trying to film a parkour video.

Dustin Hinkle, 26, and a few friends were making the video on the rooftop of the Denver City Lofts last Friday when things went down, CBS Denver reported.

Hinkle said he was running, climbing and jumping on the roof of the building when he landed on a chimney cover that gave way.

“We were just trying to have some fun, and I jumped off, hung off the edge and my feet were only two feet above the other one, and I dropped down, and I dropped down, and I fell through the top of it,” Hinkle told CBS Denver.

After plunging 40 feet down, a cable caught his fall, according to officials.

Hinkles was stuck inside the chimney for about two hours.

Firefighters entered a vacant apartment and had to rip through the brick to extract him, according to CBS Denver.

After getting checked out at the hospital, Hinkle was arrested and charged with trespassing.

His friends Jayce Anderson, 23 and Mary Jo McHugh, 20, were also charged with trespassing and with interference of a police officer for reportedly running from police.
