Burglar Gets Stuck Trying To Shimmy Down Chimney

A would-be burglar is busted after he tries to shimmy down the chimney of a Florida house.

The guy apparently just wasn't skinny enough and he got stuck in the tight space. His foot is left dangling in the fireplace.

It took firefighters about half-an-hour to get him out. They then handed him over to the cops.

Biden Congratulates The Wrong Marty Walsh On Boston Mayoral Win

Marty Walsh was at home Tuesday night watching the election results for Boston's mayoral race when he turned to his wife and said, "I bet it would be funny if I got a call tonight from the White House."

Ten minutes later, the phone rang.

It was a White House operator. Walsh, a former aide to U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy who is familiar with the White House connection process for congratulatory calls, tried to warn the operator that they had the wrong guy.

Moments later, a Washington area code popped up on his phone.

Vice President Joe Biden quickly congratulated who he thought was former state legislator and now Mayor-elect Marty Walsh.

"Son of a gun, Marty!" Biden said. "You did it."

Mr. Walsh called into "New Day" Thursday to talk about the event.

"New Day" Staffer Rescues People From Fire

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a "New Day" staffer becomes a hero. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Our very own stage manager, Bruce Dunkins, we call him "Bruce Almighty" because he always knows where we're going and what we're doing,  spotted the beginnings of a fire in Brooklyn last night, and jumped into action.

Turns out, it was a roof fire across the street and it was growing.

As soon as he saw it he disregarded his own safety and ran into the building getting people out. He then reverted from first responder to TV guy and shot video of the fire.

We should mention, Bruce didn't tell us about this, his friends did. We had to drag him up here to give him credit for it.

If you have #GoodStuff news, let us know! Leave a comment, post on Facebook,  or tweet to @ChrisCuomo & @NewDay using #NewDay and submit your story on iReport.
