Rescue crews have saved a naked woman who was stuck between two buildings, though how she got there remains a mystery.

On Tuesday afternoon, Santa Ana Police Department officers were called to two commercial buildings in Santa Ana, California, and found the woman wedged between the two walls, local news station KTLA reported.

Reportedly, the space between the walls was less than a foot wide.

The authorities were called after workers at a nearby business heard cries for help, though they were unsure where the cries were coming from.

Officers then found the woman, wedged between the walls and rescue crews were called to the scene.

Orange County Fire Authority cut through eight inches of concrete to free the woman, who was extracted from the predicament two and a half hours later.

The fire service shared a video on Twitter showing firefighters keeping an eye on the woman while they cut through the wall, adding rescue workers ventilated the area for her.
