Firefighters rescue 85-year-old man stuck between narrow walls

Firefighters rescued an 85-year-old man who got stuck between narrow walls in southern China.

Video footage shows the man in Yulin City, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, trapped in a 20-centimeter-wide gap and unable to move.

Firefighters were called to the scene, and a relatively slim member of the team took a rope to the victim. The firefighter put the rope under the man's armpits and began pulling him out.

After an hour, he was freed and sent for medical evaluation.

The video was filmed on November 12 and provided by local media.
