MELBOURNE, Fla. -- It was an unusual rescue for about 20 firefighters at a Brevard County gas station.


An unidentified employee at the Hess Mart on Wickham Road in Melbourne dropped her cell phone down a drain late Saturday night. When she reached down to retrieve it, she got stuck.

Rescuers had to remove a four-foot section of an outside wall so they could access the pipe and the woman attached to it.

More than four hours later, the woman was released and taken to the hospital to have the pipe removed from her arm.
