Woman between two houses - level 3

Woman between two houses - level 3

12-12-2013 06:00

You can barely see her, but in that small gap, a woman wearing purple, has become trapped.

Emergency services arrived at the scene after a 911 call that said a woman had fallen about 25 feet before becoming trapped between the buildings.

About an hour later, firefighters managed to pull the woman to safety.

She can then be seen speaking with firefighters and appeared to be alert as rescue workers put her on a stretcher

No information has been released about the extent of any injuries she may have sustained. There is also no further detail on how she fell in the first place.

Difficult words: barely (almost not), alert (able to think clearly), stretcher (thing used for carrying injured people).
