A woman’s shortcut turned out to be anything but.

The resident of east China’s Anhui Province tried to fit in a gap between two walls around 10 p.m. Saturday and she got stuck, according to the U.K. Metro.

Despite her efforts to free herself, she was trapped until 5 a.m. when a passerby saw her and called for help.

The video shows rescue workers sitting atop the lower wall using a chisel and drill to carefully remove some of it in order to free her. One worker in an orange jump suit covers the woman’s head and back to protect her as another breaks up bricks to make a hole in the wall.

Finally, enough of an opening is created and the four men are able to pull her free.

"OK," one can be heard saying.

According to the Metro, it took about 20 minutes to get her out of her tight spot.
