VIDEO: Portland Firefighter Who Rescued Woman Trapped Between Walls Speaks Out

The man who led the rescue of a woman trapped between two walls in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday morning described the extraction to the local FOX affiliate, saying that the woman was in good spirits during the rescue ... albeit extremely cold.

"We just assured her we were doing everything we could to get her out and ... we weren't going home without her," said Rich Chapman of the Portland Fire Department.

As for any insight on how the woman slipped in between the walls in the first place? "I really didn't get a good understanding of how she got herself stuck in there," he said.

Chapman estimated the gap at approximately eight inches wide and said he and fellow rescue workers used soapy water to lubricate the walls and the victim.
