NY girl falls 14 stories, saved by sooty landingNEW 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.
The 2-foot-deep pile of ash and dust may have saved her life, cushioning her fall when she crashed into a basement furnace, fire officials said.
