P.P.A., a nine-year-old girl in Lao Cai City of the namesake northern mountainous province, was saved from a 25-centimeter gap between two houses on Friday.

According to the Lao Cai Province Police, at about 4:15 pm, local residents detected the girl who got wedged between the walls of two houses in Kim Tan Ward, Lao Cai City after falling from the second floor of one of the two houses.

Two vehicles and more than 20 firefighters and rescuers were later detached to the scene to save the girl.

The gap between the two walls was determined to be 25 centimeters wide and have no exit. As a result, the girl could not escape from the gap herself.

To pull the girl out of the gap, rescuers dismantled part of the walls.

After nearly 30 minutes, the girl was saved. Her health has been stable.
