ATLANTA, GA (CNN) - An Atlanta-area woman is recovering after falling into a trash chute.

Amanda Still says she accidentally tossed her cell phone away with the garbage, leading to a challenging rescue.

"I saw the phone. It was, like, right there, so I would've never fell in. Well, I had flip-flops on."

"You can see the top of her feet from the, ah, from where you throw the trash in."

Compacted trash kept Still from falling all the way down the chute.

A friend called 911 for her.

She walked away with some cuts and bruises.
