July 17, 2013: A Chinese woman who got stuck between two walls overnight after attempting a shortcut has been rescued.

A Chinese woman has been rescued after spending the night stuck between two walls because she tried to take a shortcut on her way home.

The unnamed woman stayed trapped between the walls in Feidong in Anhui Province for seven hours until a passer-by found her and called for help.

They reportedly hadn't helped her during the night because they assumed her cries for help came from a ghost.

Firefighters spent half an hour breaking down one of the walls to free her, Shanghaiist reported.

The woman had reportedly tried to squeeze through the gap but didn't realise the passage between the walls became narrower and narrower as it went on.
