A woman in Toronto was rushed to hospital with serious injuries after she tried to walk between two buildings, fell and got stuck in the gap.

Toronto police responded to a building on College Street near Bathurst Street Monday night for a woman who had fallen off the roof of a three-storey building and got stuck.

The victim, in her 20s, was visiting friends at the time, police told CTV Toronto.

“They were out on a rooftop patio and this lady decided to go over top from one roof to another,” Sgt. Sean Cassidy said.

She stepped on a type of plastic that covered the three-foot-wide space, but it gave way, he added.

Firefighters had to scale down between the buildings to assess the woman, who was conscious, and then used a basket to hoist her up, District Chief Stephan Powell told AM640.
