Woman Falls Through The Ceiling During Hunt For Christmas Decorations
Although Father Christmas' legs are the only ones you'd expect to see dangling through your ceiling at this time of year, it was 30-year-old Stacielea Doran who was caught short while searching for decorations.
Wearing a Beauty and the Beast onesie, no less.
Partner Nicki Ball, 34, spotted Stacielea dangling from the ceiling on Friday morning at their Bloxwich flat after Stacielea quite literally fell through the floor of their loft. She immediately called 999 for help (while having a nice old chuckle at the blunder) and firefighters rushed to the scene to help wedge her out of the hole.
As the team got to work, Nicki did what any loving partner would do - laughed and took pictures, obviously.
Stacielea said: "When she came out and saw me she just laughed. Rather than helping me she took pictures.
"I can laugh about it now - if I don't laugh I'll cry."
Apparently the couple had just returned from their holiday and decided to get in the festive spirit by putting their decorations up. Little did they know that their loft was about to give way at any moment.

Crew Commander Adam Lovatt added: "We received the call at 10:30am on December 7.
"On the way we were obviously thinking it could be quite a serious incident and there might be someone quite badly injured.
"Fortunately, I think it was embarrassment more than injury. I don't think any of us have ever been called out to something like that before."
It could be worse - they could've been called out to rescue a woman trapped in a window after trying to rescue her poop (on a first date). Yeah, remember that?
Anyway, for the West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service, it was a break from the norm and so of course they Tweeted pictures of the bizarre incident, along with the caption: "On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: A person in a onesie.
"White Watch crews have responded to a lady who had fallen through the ceiling from the loft whilst retrieving Christmas decorations. Luckily no injuries were sustained."
Aside from a few bruised egos.
