MPD and MFD responded, and were able to safely get the pair of youth out of the chip car.
There were three teenage boys at the scene. Someone had dropped their cell phone into the car, as they had reportedly climbed up and were looking inside of huge, empty car. Two of them hooked their belts together, and climbed inside to retrieve the phone;’ but were unable to get out.
A neighbor on Railroad Street heard them, tried to help, and called the police.
After being rescued, the youth were taken to the City Hall, to be picked up by their parents.
