    Firefighters saved a woman who fell between two buildings in Santa Ana Monday night, officials said.

    Officials reported about 6:45 p.m. a woman fell 25 feet between two buildings at West Edinger Avenue and South Main Street in Santa Ana.

    The woman tried to jump from the roof of an abandoned store to the roof of a strip mall, Orange County Fire Spokesperson Steve Concialdi told NBC4.

    The 28-year-old woman was stuck in an 18-inch wedge, and 30 firefighters spent more than an hour between the walls before they were finally able to pull her out, officials said.

    The woman could be seen speaking with firefighters and appeared to be alert. Firefighters put her on a stretcher as she was lowered to the ground from the roof.

    It was not clear why she was on the roof or jumping between the buildings.
