March 13, 2019

A patient climbed into a drop ceiling of an emergency room bathroom, then fell and became trapped in a wall at West Chester Hospital in West Chester, Ohio, according to an article on the WCPO website.

Once in the drop ceiling, the man breached a fire wall and dropped to the floor behind an ER hallway wall.

The patient beat on the drywall and eventually kicked a hole in it. 

Firefighters then removed a large enough section of drywall and chair railing for the man to crawl out.
