81-year-old spends four days in bathtub
Firefighters have rescued an 81-year-old pensioner who spent four days stuck in her bathtub. The woman says she got into it for a warm bath and found that she couldn't muster enough strength to get herself back out.
Authorities in Linz, which is about 120 miles west of Vienna, Austria, said they went to the woman's apartment after neighbors reported hearing faint knocking inside.
Firefighters told the public broadcaster ORF that the woman was in surprisingly good condition despite having been immersed in the bath water since last Thursday evening. She apparently told her rescuers that she lacked enough strength to get herself back out of the tub and that she had been knocking on the wall and shouting for help.
The woman was taken to hospital and treated for exposure.
