Man freed


TORONTO—A man who got stuck in a narrow gap between two buildings in downtown Toronto spent nearly eight hours in the confined space before he was freed by firefighters who broke through part of a wall to rescue him.

Firefighters were called to a set of buildings on Sherbourne Street near Queen Street shortly after 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

The man, said to be in his 30s, told rescuers he had fallen from a nearby roof and got stuck between the buildings about five hours earlier.

Firefighters managed to break through a thick wall in one of the buildings and free the man around 11 p.m.

He was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
