Washington County first responders rescued a child who was trapped after falling through a floor air-conditioning vent.
The Chappell Hill Volunteer Fire Department says units were called out just after 3:45 p.m. Tuesday to a home in the 4100 block of Marshall Lane in Chappell Hill.
When they arrived, they discovered that a small child had fallen through a loose floor AC register vent and was trapped in the basement wall.
Firefighters broke through the sheet rock to remove the child from the wall. No injuries were reported for the child, who was returned to the parents.
Responding agencies included the Chappell Hill Volunteer Fire Department with mutual aid from the Brenham Fire Department, along with Washington County EMS.
