FDNY crews tackled a unique rescue Sunday when a New York University student found himself wedged between two buildings on Lafayette Street in Manhattan.

FDNY posted two photos on its Twitter feed showing how firefighters had to breech a wall to rescue the victim. The rescue took about 90 minutes and the victim was taken to an area hospital in serious condition, but conscious.

It was not immediately clear how the victim got stuck. The New York Daily news reported that 19-year-old Asher Vongtau had been missing since Saturday.
