NORTH AMITYVILLE - Police say they had to cut through a North Amityville home this evening to get to a 35-year-old obese woman who called 911 saying she had chest pains.

They say the woman lives in the basement and could not fit through the door of the home.

Members from several fire departments had to cut the house open and use ropes to get her out and take her to the hospital.
