    NY girl falls 14 stories, saved by sooty landing

    NEW YORK - A 12-year-old girl fell into a chimney on the roof of her apartment building, plummeted 14 stories down the flue and landed almost unscathed in a pile of furnace soot.

    Grace Bergere, a young rock drummer, remained hospitalized Saturday for treatment of an injured hip.
