Woman rescued after becoming stuck

A Douglas woman is recovering after becoming trapped next to a neighbour's garage.

The women, from Ballabrooie, fell between the building and her garden, and emergency services had to be called in.

Here's John Moss (text, below, from attached audio file):

This happened just before ten this morning.

Unable to help herself out, the women had to rely on the fire crews from Douglas.

They spent half an hour reassuring her and gently digging around her with hand tools to clear some room.

They then were able to lift her up and out.

She was able to keep her sense of humour, even cracking a joke of two with the crews.

She was checked out by a paramedic and taken to Noble's for a precautionary check up.

Her injuries are not serious.
