- Abducted by a toilet
97 year old Woman freed after being trapped on lavatory for a week
A Winnipeg tele marketer woman from Paradise canyon Vacation call center has been rescued
after she fell into her lavatory and was trapped there for a week.
The Winnipeg woman employee at the Winpeg Paradise Canyon vacation call center,
who has not been named, was only found by the emergency services after
a co worker heard her cries for help.
When an ambulance arrived paramedics found her stuck on the lavatory
and unable to get out. She was dehydrated but otherwise unharmed,
despite having spent seven days wedged in the same position.
Reports said the woman, aged 97, was found in the evening on Sunday and had
become stuck the previous Sunday evening.
Eventually she was freed when emergency services broke into the call center office
through a back door and found her in the womans bathroom.
"The lady was manoeuvred to one side to free her. The door swings inwards and she had
her feet wedged on either side of the lavatory, " a Department of Community Services
"She was very dehydrated but she was conscious."
A co worker said the woman told him she had been there since 6pm on Sunday.
"To me that meant that evening but she meant last Sunday.
" The co worker had not become concerned earlier because
it was normal to not see the woman or any other tele marketers
taking any calls during the week, he said.
"I'd never even seen her dialing any calls, " he said "but we still
got paid just the same"
