A woman in China's Anhui province took what she thought was a shortcut home, going down a narrow passageway beside a residential building. That turned out to be a huge mistake – the gap got much narrower and she found herself stuck. That's scary enough, but it's only the beginning of the story, as we learned from the UK Daily Mail.
During the night, people living in the neighborhood heard the woman's cries for help, but mistook the sounds within the walls for the wailing of a ghost.
When a rescue team finally arrived seven hours later, they had to break through the outer wall to free the woman from the tiny space, as you can see in the clip below. She was physically unharmed, but probably a lot more traumatized than the people who thought the building was haunted.
Here's footage of the rescue from China's CCTV:
