Man tries to save a dummy hanging off a roof not realizing that it's a decoration inspired by the classic scene in 'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation'.
'He was doing everything he could to get the ladder and save Clark, ' Wheless said to ABC.
It may be beginning to look a lot like Christmas across parts of the country, but one set of holiday decorations sparked panic in a Texas neighborhood.
An Austin police officer then responded to the 9-1-1 call and spoke with a nanny who was in the house at the time.
The family said they bought the dummy online and decked it out in a Chevy Chase mask and clothes like those the actor wore in the film.

The Heerlein's have also added a sign to the bottom of the display explaining the Christmas display so nobody else calls 911. "We have a very special gift that we would like to give him and we'd like to tell him thank you", Wheless said.
In the clip Norwood is seen frantically running to the mannequin screaming 'Please hold on!' and calling to nearby cars for help. And even 911 calls.
Passerby Alfred Norwood Jr was recorded on the family's surveillance cameras trying to rescue the dummy last week.
In 2017, a Colorado man's holiday display recreating the Griswold scene scared his neighbors enough for them to call 911.
The family told the TV station they felt so bad about the man's reaction that they'd like to thank him for being so concerned. "Except when I started talking to him, he never said nothing!"
