Woman trapped in tiny gap between building walls

Help

A woman in Portland, Oregon had to endure a four-hour rescue operation in freezing conditions after getting herself stuck in a tiny space between two walls.

She had been walking on the roof over a gap between two buildings when she fell into the 30cm space.

Firefighters eventually freed the woman by using heavy-duty saws to cut through one of the walls.
