A man who became trapped between two buildings in Pittsburgh was rescued reportedly after trying to jump from one rooftop to another to impress a woman he had just met.

Authorities did not identify the man, who was freed after becoming trapped for about four hours.

He had fallen awkwardly into the narrow, debris-filled space between the buildings.

Police say the man reported an ankle injury; he was bleeding, but waved to TV news cameras as he was wheeled on to an ambulance.

Crews broke a hole through a restaurant wall to reach him, and lowered another medic on a rope to ensure the rescue efforts did not injure the man more.
