Woman in China gets stuck between walls for seven hours


One woman in China has discovered that shortcuts are not always the easiest way to reach a destination after she became wedged in between two walls.

The woman was trying to get home quickly by squeezing through the gap in between walls when she became trapped and unable to move.

She imprisoned in the wall overnight and it was only when passersby noticed her that the alarm was raised. Fire fighters rescued her by breaking down one of the walls which had incarcerated her for seven hours.
