Woman trapped – after leaping between two buildings


A CALIFORNIA woman was left trapped in an 18-inch gap for more than an hour after she tried to leap between two buildings.

The 28-year-old was jumping across the rooftops of commercial buildings in Santa Ana, Orange County, on Monday night when she stumbled.

At first she plunged five-feet into the void and then, with her feet sideways on the walls, managed to “scoot down to the bottom,” the fire department revealed.

She ended up wedged — not being able to move left or right — between a vacant supermarket and a strip mall.

Dozens of firefighters were called to free her from the tiny gap.

    It appears as if the rescuing authorities need to (only) give this woman some (very) basic nutritional sustenance and wait it out for a more opportune time to pull her out of her dilemma. From all appearances some pre-holiday dieting might do her some good.
