A woman in China became trapped in a wall while taking a shortcut, for seven hours. Unfortunately, because locals thought that her cries for help were from a ghost
, nobody helped her, according to The Telegraph
The woman was walking through a passageway that became tighter as she continued through it, eventually trapping herself. As she screamed for help, however, residents thought she was a ghost. We suppose she could have yelled, "Hey, I'm not a ghost!" Then again, that's exactly
what a ghost would say.
Eventually -- seven hours later -- a wise passerby called for help.
Check out the video below of firefighters pulling the woman out of the wall:
