TORONTO – 

Toronto firefighters had to free a man who somehow became stuck in a narrow space between two buildings.

A platoon chief said the gap between the buildings on Sherbourne St. near Queen St. E. was extremely narrow and “no more than 8 inches (20 cm) wide.”

The man had been stuck for about eight hours and was too weak to grab ropes that were thrown his way.

Platoon Chief James Green said during the rescue that the man had little circulation in his arms and legs “so he can’t really move.”

It’s not clear how he became stuck, but it’s thought he may have squeezed into the gap to try to retrieve something.

Rescue workers cut through walls to reach him.

Green says crews are in constant contact with the man and have been giving him water and trying to protect him from the equipment and brick debris.
