A college student, who was stuck in between two walls for two days was finally rescued, KCTV5 reported on Nov. 4. The two walls is actually a two-foot crevice in between a parking garage and an 18-story dorm building. In order to rescue 19-year-old Asher Vongtau, firefighters had to bust through a cinder block.
Surprisingly, he was alive, conscious and seemed to be "in pretty good healthy," Deputy Chief Joseph Schiralli said. The New York University student was hooked up to a heart monitor and they started IV's on him.
The student apparently went missing when someone pulled a fire alarm at an NYU dorm. The last time anyone saw Vongtau, students were running out of the building, but he was running back in.
His friend, Colin Chenel said,
"His phone was off and he hadn't checked into an NYU building in the last couple of days."
So he and other friends asked university security to check the area. It was then that Vongtau was found stuck in between two walls.
Michael Yablom said,
"They would not have found him for who knows how long and he would probably be dead right now."
It took emergency personnel an hour and a half to rescue the college student, but there is no word on how he got stuck in between the two walls in the first place.
