Woman Wedged Between 2 Buildings Freed by Rescuers

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTLA) — A woman stuck for several hours in a narrow space between two buildings had to be rescued by firefighters Wednesday morning.

Rescuers had to cut a hole in a block wall to get to the woman.

They pumped heat into the foot-wide space to keep her warm, and doused her with soapy water to help her slip out.

The woman seemed to be ok, but was taken to a hospital to be checked out.

Apparently the woman fell into the space when she was walking on the roof of one of the buildings.
