A woman in Oregon became trapped between two buildings.

No word on how — she fell into the narrow space — that was just a few inches wide.

“Somehow, she was on top of this 20-foot-high wall and fell down between the walls,” said Lt. Damon Simmons of the Portland Fire and Rescue, according to NBC News. “The space that was in between them, at the widest, was probably eight inches and it got narrower from there. She was wedged in. She fell down about 10 or 12 feet.”

It took crews a few hours to free here. They had to drill holes into the cement walls — then spray a soapy substance on her.

She’s expected to be OK.
