Emergency services were called to a home in Arrecife after calls that it was strangely quiet inside. They would later find that the inhabitant, a 90-year-old woman, had found herself stuck in the bathroom for ten hours.
On Saturday at 9am, firefighters were called to a home on calle Doctor Rafael Gonzalez after neighbours thought it was too quiet and unusual that the inhabitant wasn’t answering.
They would enter to find the home empty, until they checked the bathroom to find that the 90-year-old inhabitant had found herself stuck inside of the bathroom and had been sitting there waiting for help for ten hours.
According to emergency services the lady had been stuck inside the bathroom since 11pm the night previous and had no way of getting to the phone to call for help.
She was taken to the Doctor José Molina Orosa hospital in Arrecife.
