A man has been rescued after he became trapped inside the walls of a theatre.
Firefighters were called after someone was heard banging on the wall and pleading for help.
It is believed that the man was stuck inside the tiny crawlspace for two whole days in Syracuse, New York state.
Rescuers cut through the theatre's walls and reportedly found him naked, BBC reports.
In a statement on Facebook, the Syracuse fire department said it was not clear how the naked man had gained access to the crawlspace behind the wall.
Speaking to Syracuse.com, a local news outlet, Landmark Theatre director Mike Intaglietta said the man had been spotted wandering around inside the theatre earlier in the week.
Employees who saw him lost track of his location and assumed he had left, Mr Intaglietta recalled.
"I don't know if he was entering to keep warm or to use the bathroom. I don't know," he added.
John Kane, deputy chief of Syracuse fire department, told local US media that the man hid in a crawlspace for two days, becoming trapped when he fell inside the wall of the theatre's male bathrooms.
Police said the man appeared to be suffering from a mental illness and would not be charged or identified.

"It's not something you want to see in broad daylight in the city centre but unfortunately it’s becoming a regular sight.
