Firefighters have rescued a 19-year-old New York University student who became trapped between two buildings in Manhattan.

Rescue workers had to breach a concrete wall to gain access to Asher Vongtau, who was found wedged between an NYU dorm and a parking garage on Sunday evening, officials said.

Police said the student was conscious and taken to Bellevue Hospital in a stable condition.

It is unclear how the student got stuck or for how long. A fire official said the only way to get to the site is from above.
