A woman wedged between two buildings was rescued in Portland, Ore. by firefighters after being stuck four hours Wednesday morning, ABC News reports Jan. 16.
The woman was said to have been smoking or walking above a two-story building when she managed to fall down a narrow gap between two buildings only eight or 10 inches apart. She fell about 12 feet and was stuck four feet from the ground. Rescuers had to cut a hole in the concrete to get her out. Firefighters also used an air bag and a lubricated soapy water to free her. Once she was rescued, she was installed with braces to support her.
TV cameras, videos, and photographers quickly raced to the scene to capture the strange drama unfolding.

Since the woman was wedged during near-freezing temperatures, firefighters turned on a portable heater to keep her warm.
Needless to say, the woman was happy once she was out of the scary position she found herself in. She excitedly said, "Oh, my God!"
Lt. Rich Chatman of the Portland fire department said the woman was in "good spirits" and they "weren't going home without her."
