A woman from Portland, Oregon, got stuck between the walls of a parking facility and an apartment building.

She was standing on the roof of one of the buildings when she fell 2 stories down, in the narrow space between them, NY Daily News writes, and she wasn't even reaching the ground with her feet. She stayed there for 4 hours, USA today writes.

Fortunately, I guess someone walking through the southwest Portland neighborhood heard her cries for help and called 911.

At 3:45 a.m., firefighters arrived at the scene and managed to cut a hole though the concrete, to be able to get her out. The moment when she was finally dislodged was caught on camera, and can be watched above.

She felt “very, very uncomfortable, scared, agitated,” Portland Fire Bureau spokesman Lt. Damon Simmons said.
